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

Lake Charles, LA – Around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, August 29, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies responded to an alarm call at a business on Broad St.  

As deputies arrived, they observed two men running from the building and were able to apprehend the men approximately a block away.

The investigation revealed Jamon D. Horn, 18, of Lake Charles, and a 15-year-old juvenile entered a fenced area then gained access in the building by removing screws from the sheet metal panels on the building.  

The items stolen were a small motorcycle, an air rifle, and two large speakers.  Horn and the juvenile were in the process of entering the building a second time when deputies arrived.  

All of the items stolen were recovered and returned to the owner.

While being questioned, Horn and the juvenile stated they attempted to break in the same business last month but did not have the proper tools.

Horn was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with burglary; theft; criminal damage to property; contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile; and illegal carrying of burglary tools.  

The juvenile was arrested and booked into the Juvenile Detention Center and charged with burglary; criminal damage to property; theft; and illegal carrying of burglary tools.

Judge Wilford Carter set Horn's bond at $5,000.

CPSO Stanford Mott is the lead investigator on this case.
