A Lake Charles man is accused of burglary and theft, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say they found 54-year-old Gregory A. Jones attempting to steal items from a home on Tallow Road in Lake Charles.

Authorities say they received a call at about 9:30 a.m. Sept. 13 advising that a suspicious vehicle was spotted at the home with numerous tools and equipment in the back.

Authorities arrived at the scene and reportedly pursued Jones briefly.

Over $2,500 in tools and equipment were recovered, including a bearing press, chain saw, air conditioning unit and a transmission stand, authorities say.

Jones was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center on charges of simple burglary, theft over $1,500 and simple criminal damage to property over $500.

Judge Ron Ware set bond in the case at $16,000.

Individuals arrested are presumed innocent unless proven otherwise in court. Initial charges often change as a case progresses.
