Three men and one woman are in custody in connection with a string of vehicle burglaries in Welsh last weekend, authorities said.

Trahan, 19, was charged with burglary, theft over $500 and possession of stolen property.

Trude, 19, was charged with possession of stolen property and accessory after the fact.

Bond was pending for Aucoin, Brock and Trahan while Trude was booked and released due to a lack of jail space.
