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

On June 16, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to the AT&T Store on Derek Drive in Lake Charles in reference to a burglary alarm that had been triggered. When deputies arrived, they discovered one of the glass doors had been shattered and several cell phones and computer tablets, worth over $5,700, had been stolen. 

During the early morning hours of June 25, CPSO deputies were dispatched to the same store in reference to the burglary alarm being triggered again.  Upon arrival, deputies discovered someone gained entry into the business by breaking a large hole in a window and stole ten cell phones, a tablet, and a pair of ear phones, all worth over $5,000.

After further investigation by detectives, two 16-year-old boys and their parents were brought into the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office for further questioning.   When questioned by detectives, one of the 16-year-old boys confirmed to burglarizing the AT&T Store on June 16.  When questioned regarding the June 25 incident, both boys confirmed to breaking the store window with a hammer and stealing numerous items from the store.

During a search of the juvenile's residences, detectives recovered several of the stolen items and returned them to the store.

Both juveniles were booked into the Juvenile Detention Center and charged with simple burglary; theft over $1,500; and criminal damage to property over $500, in connection with the June 25 burglary.  One of the juveniles is also charged with an additional count of simple burglary; theft over $500; and criminal damage to property, in connection with the June 16 burglary.

CPSO Detective Jonathan Corkran and Detective Doug Jean are lead investigators on these cases.

    Tonging is way to fish for oysters using two large sticks.  fishermen say it's much harder than dredging, which they do now, and much less efficient. "It's like using a post hole digger, where you've actually got to dig the oysters up by hand and pick them up and put them on your boat by hand," said Leo Dyson of Cameron.
