WESTLAKE, LA (KPLC) -
A traffic stop led to a burglary arrest on Tuesday in Westlake, according to a news release from the department.
Roy Harold Woodard, 41, is charged with six counts of possession of stolen property, possession of CDS I, possession of CDS II and possession of drug paraphernalia.
On Tuesday, Westlake Police Chief Michael Dickerson stopped a vehicle being driven by Woodard who was reportedly acting suspiciously, driving around in a neighborhood.
Dickerson said a subject fitting Woodard's description was reported to be stopping at houses, claiming he was selling disaster insurance.
Dickerson said during the traffic stop, it was discovered that Woodard was in possession of a large amount of jewelry and loose coins.
Dickerson said the investigation revealed that those items were from several burglary cases that the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office was investigating.
CPSO detectives were contacted. Detectives were able to identify items taken from six different burglaries in the Moss Bluff and Iowa areas, according to authorities.
Woodard was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center on $22,000 bond.
"It took a team effort and cooperation between the two departments to successfully solve those cases. Even though the burglaries occurred out of the city limits, WLPD is committed to helping other departments fight crime and recover stolen property," Dickerson said.
