Two brothers are in jail in connection with a string of vehicle burglaries in the Bluff Road area of Ascension Parish, Sheriff’s Lt. Col. Paul Robert said Monday.
A home surveillance system led investigators to arrest Joshua Blanchard, 21, and Joey Bourque, 18, both of 16098 Bluff Road, Prairieville, Sheriff Jeff Wiley said in a news release.
The Sheriff’s Office has been investigating a rash of burglaries over the past couple of months that has resulted in weapons, laptop computers, iPhones, money and other items being taken from unlocked vehicles, Robert said.
State District Judge Alvin Turner set the brothers’ bail at $70,281.50 each, Robert said. Additional charges are pending, Robert said.
