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

On Nov. 25, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to a local business on Highway 90 in Lake Charles regarding a report of a theft. When deputies arrived, they spoke with the victim, an employee of the business, who advised her purse, which contained cash and a cell phone, valued at over $1,500, was stolen while she was at work.

During further investigation, detectives discovered Kayla F. Foster-Hennen, 28, of Lake Charles, a patron of the business, was captured by video surveillance removing the victim's purse from the office area and throwing it in a trash can outside of the business. Moments later, video surveillance captured Foster-Hennen dragging the trash can out of camera view.

When questioned by detectives, Foster-Hennen confirmed she stole the victim's purse and also advised detectives that she threw the victim's purse in a river after discovering she was caught on surveillance video stealing the purse.

Foster-Hennen was arrested on and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with theft over $500 and released on a $1,000 bond set by Judge Wilford Carter. 

CPSO Detective Jonathan Corkran is the lead investigator on this case.

    Nice weather on MondayNice weather on Monday

    Through the rest of tonight, we will have clear skies with rain chances down to zero. Temperatures will cool down to the upper 30s to the low 40s tonight, so it will be cooler from last night. With the clouds clearing, that will allow temperatures to quickly fall. Frost is possible north of I-10! Monday will be another beautiful day! Highs will remain in the mid 60s with mostly sunny skies. There could be a few more clouds in the afternoon, but none that will bring any rain.
