A reported break-in and theft at a Sulphur home has led to the arrest of two men and one woman.
It was on May 8 that Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a report of a burglary at a home on Raleigh Reed Rd. The victim reportedly told deputies that when he returned home, he had discovered a window had been force open and the screen damaged. He found several items were missing, including a television, an X-Box, a Sony docking station, a compound bow, a shotgun, and jewelry.
During the course of the investigation, CPSO detectives received a tip that Kevin McBrain, 33, of Post Oak Rd.; James Carey, 22, of Wright Rd.; and Katie Carey, 31, of Mary Ann Dr., all in Sulphur, were allegedly responsible for the burglary.
On June 12, detectives located McBrain for questioning. McBrain reportedly confirmed that he, James Carey, and Katie Carey were responsible for the burglary. Detectives also received a tip on the whereabouts of both Careys. They were located at a home in Sulphur, and after further questioning, James Carey reportedly also confirmed the allegations.
McBrain, along with James and Katie Carey, were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and each charged with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, theft of a firearm, theft over $1,500, and simple criminal damage to property. McBrain was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Judge Ron Ware set James Carey's bond at $9,000. Katie Carey was released on a $9,000 bond, and McBrain was released on a $37,000 bond, both set by Judge Ware.
Officials state that detectives were able to recover some of the stolen items and returned them to the victim.
CPSO Detective Glenn Lowery is the lead investigator in this case.
