CPSO detectives received permission from the homeowner to search the residence for stolen items.  In  a room occupied by Kevin L. Nguyen, 18, of Lake Charles, and Frank A. Richardson, 18, of Moss Bluff, detectives located a large duffel bag and two rifles in plain view which were some of the items reported stolen from victims' unlocked vehicles during the night.

Richardson and Nguyen confirmed to detectives they had been car hopping and stealing items from unlocked cars.  Both were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with 3 counts of simple burglary; 3 counts of theft over $1,500; and 3 counts of theft under $300.

All items were recovered and returned to owners.

Judge Wilford Carter set Richardson's bond at $10,500 and Nguyen's bond at $7,500.

CPSO Detective Kerrick Gabrial is the lead investigator in this case.
