The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office:

On Aug. 19, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to a house on Fontenot Road in Lake Charles in reference to a burglary and theft.

Upon arrival, deputies spoke with the victim who advised on Aug. 11, family acquaintance, Simon M. Broussard, 27, of Moss Bluff, was found searching through dresser drawers inside the home and asked to leave.

A few days later, the victim returned to the home and discovered over $500 in jewelry and collectable coins and a handgun were missing.

During further investigation, it was learned several pieces of the stolen jewelry were pawned by Broussard at a local pawn shop on Aug. 6 and were recovered by detectives and returned to the victim.

On Sept. 11, Broussard was arrested on and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with theft over $500. He has been released on a $3,000 bond set by Judge Ron Ware.

CPSO Detective Eddie Curol is the lead investigator on this case.
