Prairieville woman pleads guilty to car burglary at Gonzales business
GONZALES – Prosecutors say a Prairieville woman has pleaded guilty to two counts of auto burglary from an incident in Gonzales in June.
District Attorney Phil Maples said 42-year-old Yolanda Lambert agreed to plead guilty following two vehicle burglaries at Picou Builders in Gonzales on June 24.
During the investigation, officers saw surveillance video that showed a female subject climbing over a locked fence and entered one of the parked vehicles. The recording showed the female suspect search the car and a Picou Builder’s company vehicle before fleeing the scene.
Employees at Picou Builders were able to identify the female suspect as Lambert. Gonzales Police contacted Lambert at her place of employment and she admitted to the burglaries.
At the time of her arrest, Lambert was on probation for simple burglary for an incident at the same location in June 2015.
Judge Thomas Kliebert ordered that Lambert be sentenced to five years with the Louisiana Department of Corrections with credit for time served.
