Man arrested for staging home invasion at his parents' home

Updated:

NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) - Authorities say a 64-year-old Dallas man is accused of staging a home invasion at his parents' Natchitoches home to cover his theft of coins and cash from a safe at the house.

Natchitoches Parish sheriff's deputies say Burton Paul Dupuy III was arrested Monday and booked with felony theft, exploitation of the infirmed and criminal mischief by filing a false police report.

The Town Talk reports (http://townta.lk/XGDSI4 ) deputies say the case began on Nov. 13 when they received a report of an armed home invasion.

Dupuy claimed the men forced him to open his parents' safe, where there were gold and silver coins valued at about $200,000 and $140,000 in cash.

Dupuy remains in jail. His bond is set at $301,000.

It was unclear whether Dupuy has an attorney.
