CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Three are facing theft charges after a detective spotted a burglary in progress, according to a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Authorities said on May 30, a detective was notified regarding the whereabouts of William Johnson II, 18, of Lake Charles, who was wanted for questioning in a separate case.

As the detective was waiting for patrol officers to assist in that case, authorities said he saw a white Grand Marquis pull into the entrance drive of a trailer park where Johnson was seen. 

The detective reportedly observed Johnson and a white male, later identified as 17-year-old Stormy Thompson, of Lake Charles, get into the car and leave. 

The detective followed the car to an apartment complex located on Shellie Lane. 

"Once at the apartment complex, the detective observed Johnson, Thompson and a black female, later identified as Jennifer Peltier, 18, of Westlake, exit the car and walk to the rear of the apartment complex. Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office Patrol division arrived at the location to assist the detective, and as deputies approached the apartment complex, they observed Johnson run from the rear of the complex," the release states.

Authorities said deputies pursued Johnson on-foot and he was apprehended.

Detectives reportedly apprehended Thompson and Peltier while they were exiting the front of the apartment complex.            

After further investigation, detectives observed the back door to the apartment had been forced open and damaged. 

Authorities said detectives also located jewelry that had been taken from the residence. All items were reportedly recovered and returned to the owner.

All were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with simple burglary. Johnson and Thompson were also charged with theft and simple criminal damage to property. 

Authorities said Johnson also had three active warrants –  two for contempt of court and one for possession of stolen property.

Johnson's bond was set at $13,000; and Thompson's bond was at $12,000. Peltier's bond was set at $10,000.
