On April 29, 2014, at approximately 10:00 p.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched in reference to a burglary in progress at a business on Common Street in Lake Charles.

While en route, deputies were advised a truck, driven by Brandon J. Phillips, 32, 129 Clydes Lane, Grand Lake, was observed stealing an aluminum boat on a trailer from the business. The caller was able to get a detailed description of the truck in which Phillips fled. Moments later, deputies located Phillips and the stolen boat and arrested him without incident.

During further investigation, deputies discovered prior to stealing the aluminum boat, Phillips tampered with the security cameras of a nearby business, breaking one of the cameras. However, deputies discovered other security cameras captured Phillips stealing the boat and leaving the business.

The stolen boat was recovered by deputies and returned to the business.

Phillips was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with criminal trespass; simple criminal damage to property under $500; and theft over $1,500.

His bond is still pending.

CPSO Sr. Cpl. Terry Faulk was the arresting deputy on this case.
