LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A Lake Charles man is accused in a vehicular burglary at a local hotel, according to a news release from the Lake Charles Police Department.

Lake Charles authorities report that on Wednesday, at approximately 10:37 p.m., officers were dispatched to 825 Broad Street (the Howard Johnson hotel) in reference to a suspicious male walking in the parking lot.

Authorities said the subject was wearing pajama pants and a white T-shirt, pulling on door handles of vehicles. 

When officers arrived, the male was reportedly located. Authorities said he was spotted with items in his hands. Authorities said when the officer made contact with the male, he dropped the items.

The man was later identified as 37-year-old Michael Ray Hagger.

"Detective M. Nicosia was called to the scene to assist in the investigation which revealed that Hagger was in the process of ‘car hopping' at 825 Broad Street when confronted by Lake Charles police officers. The items Hagger had been carrying and discarded when confronted by officers came out of a vehicle in the 900 block of South Division Street," the release states.

Hagger allegedly went into a vehicle and removed several items without the victim's permission. 

Hagger was booked on charges of simple burglary of a motor vehicle, theft from a motor vehicle, resisting an officer and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Total bond was set at $8,000.
