LIVINGSTON - A suspected burglar in Livingston Parish is now behind bars, after investigators say his cell phone gave him away.

After being captured by a K-9, deputies pulled the suspect from the attic.

Deputies arrested David Bennett, of Walker.  Bennett was booked into the Livingston Parish Jail on burglary charges, and is being held on a $16,000 bond.
