Car Burglary

3 men were busted for breaking into cars.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a call in the area of Georgia Avenue in Hayes where a witness saw several men running from a vehicle after the alarm went off.  A witness was able to give deputies a description of the car as the suspects left the area.    

Later, deputies observed a car matching the description of the suspects’ car in Lake Charles and witnessed the men inside the car appear to be attempting to conceal items.  When deputies approached the car they observed two handguns in plain view on the driver’s and passenger’s floorboard.  Deputies spoke with the driver, Steven T. Arceneaux, Jr., 22, Lake Charles, and asked him to exit the car at which time they conducted a safety pat down and located a handgun in his pocket.  After speaking with the passengers, Terrence O. Tramble, 22, Lake Charles, and Marshall Smith, III, 33, Lake Charles, deputies located 4 other handguns hidden throughout the car.  Deputies were also advised by one of the passengers that all guns inside the car were stolen earlier that night, as well as some speakers, that were located inside the car.

Arceneaux is charged with 4 counts simple burglary; theft less than $1,000; theft of a firearm; and illegal carry of a weapon.  His bond is $48,000; two charges of simple burglary are still pending a bond.  Tramble is charged with 4 counts of simple burglary; theft less than $1,000; and theft of a firearm.  His bond is $112,500.  Smith is charged with 6 counts of illegal possession of a firearm by a convicted felon; 4 counts of simple burglary; theft of a firearm; and theft less than $1,000.  His bond is $437,500.
