The following is a Press Release from Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

On September 29 at approximately 2:00 a.m., a Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office Vehicle Crimes Unit detective observed a man, later identified as Jeffrey W. Hebert, 39, Bronco Lane, Moss Bluff, walking on Mark Lebleu Road in Lake Charles towards a truck that was parked in some brush. 

When the detective approached Hebert and the truck, he observed a large amount of cut copper wiring and burglary tools in the bed of the truck.  When questioned by the detective, Hebert confirmed he had stripped the copper wiring from several utility poles in the area.  

Hebert was transferred to CPSO for further questioning and advised detectives that he had committed two other copper wiring thefts in the past few days, including another incident on Mark Lebleu Road on September 27 and on Lane Road in Iowa on September 29.  In both cases, numerous amounts of copper wiring had been reported stolen from power sub-stations.  

Hebert, who is currently on probation until 2014 for drug charges, was arrested and booked into Calcasieu Correctional Center.  He is charged with 3 counts of simple burglary; 3 counts of theft $500--$1,500; 3 counts of simple criminal damage to property less over $1,500; criminal trespass; possession of burglary tools; and possession of drug paraphernalia. 

The investigation is continuing with more arrests possible.

Detective Sconnie Granger is the lead investigator in this case.
