PRAIRIEVILLE - A Prairieville man sought in connection with the theft of $30,000 in jewelry and guns from an Ascension Parish home has been arrested and returned to the parish from Georgia.
According to the sheriff's office, 32-year-old Shane Medine surrendered to authorities in Gwinnett County, Ga., and arrived at the Ascension Parish jail on Dec. 30.
