Lake Charles – On Wednesday, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to a house on Joe Miller Road in Moss Bluff in regard to a man breaking into multiple vehicles in the area.

While in route to the location of the burglaries, deputies were notified that the owner of one of the burglarized vehicles was in a foot pursuit with the suspect, later identified as Devin P. Vezinat, 17, 1484 Joe Miller Road, Lot # 1, Moss Bluff.  Vezinat was quickly located and apprehended by deputies at his house.

Vezinat was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with 8 counts of simple burglary; 8 counts of theft under $500; and theft of a firearm. 

Judge Ron Ware set his bond at $21,000.

CPSO Detective John Casarez is the lead investigator on this case.
