FOX 8 received this news release Tuesday afternoon from the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office:

The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office arrested an Amite man in connection with a series of local business burglaries, Sheriff Jerry Larpenter said.

During the past four months, TPSO deputies and detectives have investigated a series of burglaries at Kelps and Will Prop Shop and Johnny's Prop Shop, both businesses in east Houma.

Both businesses were burglarized multiple times since March 2013. The business of Kelps and Will was burglarized six times and Johnny's Prop Shop was burglarized twice.

Suspects were captured on video surveillance during each of the incidents entering secured areas of the businesses and stealing multiple 200-300 pound boat propellers.

TPSO detectives have been conducting surveillance of both businesses. Monday night at approximately 1:30 a.m., a detective conducting surveillance on the building witnessed a subject scale the fenced yard at Kelps and Will Prop Shop and attempt to remove a propeller from the yard. As the detective and supporting units responded to the area, the suspect fled on foot. Detectives located the suspect's vehicle, parked behind the business. It was occupied by one passenger. That subject, identified as Monroe Caston, 53 of Amite, was immediately taken into custody.

A perimeter was established in the area and the original suspect, identified as Larry Warren, 45, of Amite, was apprehended in a wooded area off of Denley Road at approximately 5:00 a.m.

Warren admitted to detectives that he was involved with the previous 8 burglaries as well as the burglary committed that night. He was arrested and booked at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex for nine counts of burglary of a business.

Caston was arrested for one count of burglary of a business and booked at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex.

This investigation is ongoing.
