Later that day, authorities responded to another burglary on Pine Park Drive. Once again, the back door was kicked in, but nothing was reported stolen.
Wednesday, the suspect's car was located on Plaza American Drive. Detectives watched a man get in the driver side. The man was identified as Quindell Webb. A female also got into the car through the passenger side. She was later identified as Webb's girlfriend and the owner of the car.
While searching the car, detectives found a prescription bottle. It was learned that the bottle was stolen in a burglary on Jan. 24. In that case, the back door was also kicked in.
Webb was later arrested and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison in connection to these crimes.
