CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Two men are accused of stealing merchandise from Wal-Mart, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said on April 4, at approximately 2:30 p.m., deputies were dispatched to the Wal-Mart Supercenter on Highway 14 in Lake Charles in reference to a theft. 

Authorities said upon arrival, deputies spoke with a Wal-Mart security team member who advised that two men, later identified as Andrew D. Anderson, 24, and David J. Sonnier, 23, both of Lake Charles, were seen concealing several items including grocery items, a DVD player and a computer monitor, valued at over $1,200, and attempting to leave the store.

"During further investigation, detectives conducted a search of Anderson and Sonnier's apartment and recovered several items that were previously stolen from the Wal-Mart Supercenter including a computer tower, a video projector and a DJ Mix Board, valued at over $1,000. All stolen items were recovered by detectives and returned to the store," the release states.

Anderson and Sonnier were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with theft over $500. 

Sonnier was also charged with illegal possession of stolen things. 

Judge Wilford Carter set Anderson's bond at $1,500; and set Sonnier's at $2,500.

CPSO Deputy Nathan McKee was the arresting deputy and CPSO Detective Scott Helms was the lead investigator on this case.
