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

Authorities said on Dec. 3, deputies were dispatched to a home on Topsy Road in Moss Bluff in reference to a burglary.

Authorities said upon arrival, deputies spoke with the victim who said that when she returned home, she discovered her home had been burglarized. She reported that several pieces of jewelry were stolen.

After further investigation, detectives arrested 41-year-old Roy Woodard in connection with the burglary and theft.

"When questioned by detectives, Woodard, who was already incarcerated in the Calcasieu Correctional Center for unrelated charges, confirmed he burglarized the victim's home and stole the items," the release states.

Woodard was charged with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and theft under $500.

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