WELSH, LA (KPLC) -

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

Welsh Police Chief Marcus Crochet said Dillan Aucoin, Ronald Brock, and Mason Trahan, all of Welsh, and Holly Trude, of Iowa, were arrested.

Crochet said the nine vehicles were burglarized Sunday night through Monday morning. Two handguns along with numerous pieces of electronic equipment was recovered

Aucoin, 18, was charged with possession of a stolen firearm, burglary, theft over $500 and possession of stolen property.

Brock, 19, was charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, theft of a firearm, possession of a firearm, obstruction of justice, burglary and theft over $500.

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.

"We believe that there several more vehicle were burglarized but the victims have not come forward yet," Crochet said. "It is possible 20 to 25 more vehicles that were broken into. We ask that residents check their vehicles and report any items that may be missing to the Welsh Police Department."
