BATON ROUGE- Authorities have arrested a man following a July burglary.
According to the arrest report, on July 28 deputies with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office were dispatched to an address on McCullough Road. At the scene, authorities discovered someone had burglarized a storage shed.
The victim said multiple items were stolen including lawn equipment, running boards for a Ford truck, and several pieces of stereo equipment. Records show a Predator 3500 Inverter Generator was also stolen from the rear of the victim's truck.
