The Iberia Parish Sheriff Louis Ackal report that deputies arrested a vehicle burglary suspect just after one o'clock this morning.

Deputies were called out to the 2000 block of Coco Palm Boulevard after someone phoned in to tell police he saw two males breaking into a pickup truck and taking things out of it.

When deputies got to the seen they saw two males running towards a field that matched the description of the burglary suspects that the witness had given.

An Iberia Parish Sheriff's Office K9 patrol dog tracked down 17-year-old Aries Antoine of New Iberia who was then taken into custody.

Police says Antoine had a large caliber handgun stolen from the truck on him when he was detained.

Antoine has been charged with:

  • Simple burglary
  • Illegal possession of stolen items
  • Resisting by flight

Deputies say they are working to find out who the second suspect in the case might be.
