Man sentenced to seven years after DNA links him to multiple burglaries
ASCENSION PARISH - Man was sentenced to several years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections after he pleaded guilty to simple burglary.
On November 16, 2016, detectives with the Ascension Parish Office responded to three business burglaries near one another. At all three locations, the front glass doors had been broken.
