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

Lake Charles, LA – On May 24, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office received a call from a homeowner in DeQuincy who stated her home had been burglarized.  She told the deputy she had left her house early that morning and when she returned home around 12:30 p.m., she found her back door had been kicked in.

When she walked inside she noticed several things had been taken including televisions; 2 guns; a Wii station; and a laptop.

The investigation led detectives to question Carrien A. Vizia, 18, of DeQuincy who confirmed participating in the burglary.

On July 2, Vizia was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with burglary; theft over $500; and theft of firearms.

Some of the items stolen were recovered and returned to the owner.  The investigation is ongoing with more arrests possible.

Judge Wilford Carter set his bond at $5,000.

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