Teen booked in burglaries of homes and vehicles

A 19-year-old man was arrested in several home and vehicle burglaries in the Donaldsonville area, Ascension Parish sheriff’s deputies said Monday.

Brad Cavalier, 19, 29 Bellina Drive, Donaldsonville, remained in Ascension Parish Prison on Monday on bail of $46,785 after his Friday arrest, deputies said in a news release.

Cavalier was booked Friday with four counts of simple burglary/theft from a vehicle, three counts of theft, three counts of unauthorized use of an access card as theft, and single counts of theft from a motor vehicle and simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, deputies said.

Deputies searched Cavalier’s house Friday after the burglary of a home on La. 1 South in the Donaldsonville area and found stolen items and a large amount of cash in his bedroom.

Deputies said Cavalier first became a suspect in a vehicle burglary on Thursday after witnesses told them he was trying to sell electronics in the area.
