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

Authorities said at about 7 p.m. Sunday, deputies were dispatched in reference to a burglary in progress at a business on Swisco Road in Sulphur.

Authorities said deputies arrived and observed a man, later identified as 25-year-old David B. Parker Jr., fleeing the business on foot.

Authorities said deputies also discovered a truck belonging to Parker, parked at the burglarized business with the hood still warm and keys in the seat.

"During further investigation, deputies recovered a handgun and a Louisiana license plate from inside Parker's truck.  After running the serial numbers of the handgun and the license plate, deputies discovered both had been reported stolen," the release states.

Authorities said on Tuesday, Parker, who was previously convicted of possession of CDS II and theft over $500, was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with simple burglary, attempted theft over $500, simple criminal damage to property, illegal possession of stolen property (license plate), possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and resisting an officer by flight.

Judge Clayton Davis set his bond at $94,000.

Authorities said the investigation is continuing with additional charges expected.
