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.
