BROUSSARD — Broussard police on Friday arrested two teenagers accused of breaking into a gun store, then running away when officers arrived.
Dabralus Flugence, 18, and a 15-year-old whose identity was not disclosed removed a window air conditioning unit so they could climb into Distant Thunder, a gun store located at 604 S. Morgan Ave. in Broussard, around 11:30 p.m. Friday, according to a news release from Police Chief Brannon Decou.
As officers arrived at the store, they saw two people running away from the business, which was closed at the time, Decou said.
The pair ran away but was spotted near the intersection of S. Morgan Avenue and Albertson Parkway by Lafayette Parish sheriff’s deputies heading to the scene to help with the investigation, Decou said.
“The suspects were unable to obtain any property from the business, and no one was injured in the incident,” Decou said.
Flugence, of Lafayette, was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on one count of simple burglary. The 15-year-old was booked into the Lafayette Parish Juvenile Detention Center on one count of simple burglary.
Anyone with more information on the incident is asked to call the Broussard Police Department at 337-837-6259.
