Police have arrested a Rayne man after he tried to break into a home there.

Rayne Police Chief Carroll Stelly says officers responded Thursday to a burglary in progress. He says officers found 40-year-old Kenny Menard trying to break into the home.

"During the arrest, Kenny Menard resisted the officers and reasonable force was used to effect the arrest," Stelly says.

Menard was booked into the Acadia Parish Jail on charges of attempted burglary, resisting an officer, battery on a peace officer, and criminal damage to property.
