ASCENSION PARISH- Deputies say all three suspects are now in custody for their connection to a residential burglary that occurred last week in Gonzales. 

According to the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office, authorities responded to a report of a burglary on Dec. 23 after the Gonzales Police Department located a stolen safe.

Detectives learned that the safe belonged to homeowners on Royal Dunes Drive, who were currently on vacation.

As the investigation continued, it was learned that Timyrus Jenkins, 22, Rayquan Ransom, 19, and James David, 17, entered the residence during the early morning hours and stole a safe, jewelry, a handgun, and collectible coins.

The suspects returned the next night and reportedly stole various electronics and two vehicles from the driveway of the residence that were later recovered.

Video surveillance showed the suspects dumping the safe on Friday morning. A license plate from the vehicle led deputies to obtain a name and address of the vehicle. Detectives executed a search warrant on the residence and located the stolen collectible coins and a small quantity of marijuana.

Jenkins and David later turned themselves in to authorities, and were charged with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, possession of marijuana, theft of a firearm, and felony theft.

Ransom turned himself into authorities Wednesday morning.
