Man arrested for 4 business burglaries in Ascension, EBR
PRAIRIEVILLE - A man accused of a series of smash-and-grab burglaries in Ascension Parish and East Baton Rouge Parish is now behind bars.
Deputies say Eric Glascock, of Prairieville, burglarized three different businesses in Gator Plaza on Highway 431 on Saturday. The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office reported that Glascock is also the suspect in a similar burglary that happened early Tuesday morning at the Mary Lee's Donuts on Greenwell Springs in Baton Rouge.
Investigators say that in all four of the burglaries, Glascock smashed glass front doors to gain entry to the businesses. Once inside, Glascock took deposit bags of cash from the Ascension Parish businesses and made off with the cash register from the donut shop, according to detectives.
He was arrested Wednesday and booked into the Ascension Parish Jail on multiple charges, including simple burglary and simple criminal damage. EBRSO currently has a hold on him at the parish jail, though charges against him in Baton Rouge have not been released at this point.
No bond has been set. Additional charges are expected.
