According to CPSO, On May 1, around 6 p.m., sheriff's deputies were dispatched to Broad Street in reference to a burglary in progress.   

When deputies arrived, they observed a man, later identified as Mitchell R. Colton, 47, of Lake Charles, fleeing the property of the business on a bike with a large curio cabinet. 

The investigation revealed Colton broke into a new mobile home at the business and stole the cabinet. 

Colton was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with simple burglary, theft over $500, illegal possession of stolen things and criminal trespass.

The stolen cabinet was recovered and returned to the owner.
