Two men arrested for theft from local refinery

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

Lake Charles, LA – In April, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to a refinery in Westlake regarding the theft of Inconel materials which is a high heat super alloy metal.  The investigation revealed the materials were taken from a storage yard located inside the refinery between December 2009 and April 2010.  

During the investigation, detectives received an anonymous tip regarding the people involved in theft.  Detectives began contacting metal scrap yards and located some of the stolen metal which had been sold in Houston and Beaumont.  The value of the stolen metal was in excess of $100,000.  

On June 8 detectives questioned Brian A. Devillier, 40, of Ragley, and Jonathan B. Henson, 28, of Sulphur, after which time they were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with theft.  The investigation revealed Devillier and Henson were paid in excess of $30,000 for the metal.

Judge Robert Wyatt set Henson's bond at $10,000.  Judge Michael Canaday set Devillier's bond at $10,000.

CPSO Detective Glen Lowery is the lead investigator on this case.  The investigation is ongoing with more arrests possible.
