CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

A Lake Charles man is accused of stealing guns from a home, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Jeremy C. Abney, 32, is accused in the case. Abney was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with possession of stolen things over $1,500 and released on a $1,500 bond set by Judge Wilford Carter. 

Authorities said on April 4, Sheriff's Office deputies were dispatched to a home on Duke Road in Lake Charles in reference to a burglary. Authorities said the victim advised that when he returned home, he discovered his home had been burglarized and four firearms were stolen from a gun cabinet in his home. 

CPSO deputies entered all information on the stolen firearms, including the serial numbers, into NCIC database.

Authorities said on April 5, CPSO deputies received information regarding the stolen firearms possibly located at another home on Duke Road in Lake Charles.

Upon arrival, authorities said deputies observed four firearms and ammo lying wrapped in a blanket on the ground next to a truck belonging to Abney.

"During further investigation, deputies ran the four firearms through NCIC and verified the four firearms were reported stolen from a home on Duke Road on April 4," the release states.

CPSO Detective Scott Helms is the lead investigator in this case.
