LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A Lake Charles man has been arrested in connection with numerous vehicle burglaries in south Lake Charles, according to information from the Lake Charles Police Department.

Andre Price Jr., 21, led authorities on a brief vehicle pursuit before he was arrested, Deputy Chief Mark Kraus said.

Price is being held at Calcasieu Correctional Center on three counts of theft, five counts of vehicle burglary, one count of resisting arrest, one count of auto theft and one count of aggravated flight from an officer. No bond has been set.

After a 2013 silver Honda Accord was reported stolen from the 600 block of East School Street on Dec. 8, authorities received several reports of burglaries in south Lake Charles, including on Washington Street, Placid Lane and River Lane, Kraus said. Several people who interrupted the burglaries all gave the same description of a suspect driving a silver Accord.

The vehicle was spotted at 9:30 p.m. in the 4900 block of Country Club Road, Kraus said. The driver failed to yield and abandoned his vehicle at a boat launch in the 8400 block of Nelson Road. Price was caught hiding in the bushes a short distance away.

  • Dog abandoned at local vet gets second chance

    It's unfortunately more common than you would think: pet owners dropping their animals off at the vet and never picking them up. Most offices cannot take in these animals, so they just end up at the shelter.

    A few showers possible Monday for the eclipseA few showers possible Monday for the eclipse

    Overnight, we will have clouds clear and will become mostly clear. Temperatures will slowly fall to the mid 70s. It will feel very warm due to the humidity. Heat indices will be in the 80s, throughout the night. Monday, the day of the eclipse, there is just a 30% chance of rain, so we will most likely have a few clouds during the time of the eclipse. There could be a few showers around the peak of the eclipse, but more likely, at least some clouds.
