LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A 33-year-old Lake Charles man has been arrested in connection with a string of burglaries at a local storage facility, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Toni Allen Simmons was arrested early Thursday morning following a two-month investigation.

Simmons is facing four counts of simple burglary, theft over $1,500, two counts of theft over $500 and two counts of simple criminal damage to property.

Bond was set at $235,000.

"Between Dec. 12 and Feb. 19, deputies were dispatched on three different occasions to a storage service building in Lake Charles in regard to burglaries," Myers said Friday.

Myers said Simmons confirmed he burglarized approximately 10 storage units at the storage facility.

"After further investigation, detectives executed a search warrant at Simmons' home and recovered a majority of the property reported stolen," Myers said. "Detectives also recovered several additional items believed to be stolen as well."

The investigation is continuing with additional charges and arrests are possible.
