CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

A man on probation for a 2004 manslaughter conviction is accused of breaking into a local law office and stealing items.

According to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office, Paul J. LaBorde, 46, of Lake Charles, is charged with two counts of simple burglary and two counts of theft under $500.

Authorities said the manslaughter conviction is out of Jefferson Parish.

Authorities said on Monday, deputies were dispatched to a Lake Charles law firm in reference to a burglary.

Authorities said deputies spoke with an employee who said when she arrived to work, she found the office had been broken into. The employee noticed that a television and a laptop bag were missing.

On Wednesday, authorities said deputies were dispatched again to the office in reference to an additional complaint. The office was reportedly burglarized a second time. A portable heater was taken during the second incident, authorities said.

Surveillance video at the office led to LaBorde's arrest, according to authorities.

"When questioned by detectives, LaBorde confirmed he burglarized the business and stole the items," the release states.

Bond in the case is set at $6,500.

Authorities said the items were recovered and returned.
