Deputies arrested a man accused of burglarizing his employer's office and lying to investigators about what happened.

Monday morning, the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a burglary in the 2200 block of St. Mary Street in Thibodaux.

Investigators said Shawn Gaudet, 36, told them he arrived at work and found the front door open. He also reported a cash box and airsoft guns as missing.

According to deputies, evidence linked Gaudet to the crime and he allegedly confessed to burglarizing the office in late December.

Gaudet was booked with simple burglary, filing a false public record. He was also wanted on an outstanding warrant related to a traffic violation.
