CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Two Lake Charles men are facing charges of burglary and theft following an investigation by the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

According to a news release from the department, Jessie Dupuis, 18, and Colton Moore, also 18, are accused in the case.

Authorities said on June 7, at approximately 2 a.m., deputies were dispatched to a Tarpon Drive home in Lake Charles in reference to a burglary in progress.   

Authorities said the caller advised that two men had taken a 12-pack of beer and three shotguns from his shop. Authorities said the homeowner reported that he saw the men drop the guns at the end of his road.

"Upon arrival, the victim pointed out a blue van leaving the neighborhood as the vehicle he believed the men were in. Deputies then stopped the van and questioned the driver about the incident. With the information given by the driver, it led detectives to Dupuis and Moore's residence on Ling Road in Lake Charles. While detectives were speaking with them at the residence, Dupuis confirmed he and Moore were responsible for the burglary," authorities said in the release.

The two were questioned further, authorities said, and they were booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center. They are charged with aggravated burglary, theft and three counts of theft of a firearm.

Authorities said Dupuis also had an active warrant for burglary and theft.

Bonds are set at $35,000 for each. Dupuis also had an additional $2,500 bond set for his active warrant.

Authorities said the stolen items were recovered and returned to the victim.

    Tonight, it should be another nice, yet warm evening. Any clouds we see today will clear away around sunset, and the rain chances go back to zero tonight. The temperatures will be fairly warm. They should not cool out of the 70s in most places. Especially near the coastline. North of I-10 has a chance to too the upper 60s, but it will still be warm. This will start off with more hot and humid conditions. There will likely be plenty of clouds every now and then.
