JENNINGS, La. (KPLC) - A Jennings man has been arrested after a set of stolen power tools were found to have been sold to a local pawn shop, according to the Jeff Davis Sheriff’s Office.

Chief Deputy Christopher Ivey says Morgan Paul LeJeune, 32, of Jennings was arrested for illegal possession of stolen things after a set of power tools that had been stolen from a home were found to have been pawned at Chad’s Pawn in Jennings.
