Authorities on Wednesday arrested a Prairieville man they say was caught on surveillance tape burglarizing several area businesses, including a Baton Rouge doughnut shop.
East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies say Eric Glascock, 42, smashed out the window at Mary Lee’s Donut Shop on Greenwell Springs Road shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday, said Casey Rayborn Hicks, an East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman. Surveillance footage shows him walking away with a cash register, Hicks said.
Glascock also broke into three businesses in the Gator Plaza shopping center at the intersection of La. 431 and La. 931, said Maj. Kevin Hanna, of the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office.
In each of the break-ins, the glass of the front door was shattered and a deposit bag with an undisclosed amount of cash was taken, authorities said.
Ascension Parish sheriff’s deputies arrested Glasock after releasing his photo and receiving an anonymous tip on his whereabouts, Hanna said. EBRSO has a hold on him currently at Ascension Parish Prison, Hicks said.
Glascock, 15305 Floyd Holton Road, was booked into Ascension Parish Jail on three counts of simple burglary, three counts of simple criminal damage to property less than $500 and two counts of theft less than $750, according to the Sheriff’s Office report.
