CPSO arrests three people for home and vehicle burglary

The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

Lake Charles, LA – Around 12:30 a.m. February 23, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office responded to a call in regard to a burglary in progress of a Hummer. 

The homeowner told the deputy he walked outside to get his wallet out of his Hummer when he saw two people running from it.  He then chased after them and lost sight of them as they fled on foot. 

As he was standing in the road he saw a car turn on its headlights and start to drive off.  He stopped the car and spoke to the two men in the car, Matthew B. Hazel, 21, and Tyler C. Hay, 18, both of Lake Charles, and asked them to follow him back to his house. 

After being questioned by deputies, Hazel and Hay revealed they were waiting in the car for the two men who were burglarizing the Hummer and had just fled on foot.

When the homeowners called in the burglary in progress of the Hummer they were not aware their house had been burglarized earlier that evening while they were out where a purse and a computer were stolen.  All four men were involved in the home burglary as well.    

Hazel and Hay were both arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with 4 counts of burglary and 2 counts of theft.

On February 25, detectives located Hunter C. Collette, 19, and arrested him on the same charges.  There has been a warrant issued for the fourth person involved.     

Judge Clayton Davis set Hazel and Hays bond at $50,000 each and Collette's at $45,000.

CPSO Detective Doug Jean is the lead investigator on this case.
