TIOGA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) – Detectives say they have arrested two juveniles and a Pineville man for allegedly burglarizing a junior high school.

According to Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office, they have arrested 37-year-old Eric Shane Douzart, and two juveniles for breaking into Tioga Junior High.

Detectives received a report that a burglary occurred at Tioga Junior High on Tuesday.  Detectives said after they reviewed the school surveillance video, and were able to identify two of the suspects as students at the school. 

Once detectives made contact with the juveniles, one admitted to breaking into the school with the others and taking one laptop computer, some Diet Cokes and a bag of popsicles, according to RPSO. 

Detectives said, they then went to the juvenile's residence and located the laptop computer, two Diet Cokes and the popsicles.

He was transported to the Rapides Parish Detention Center and his bond is set at $6,500 bond.

The juveniles were arrested for simple burglary and were then released into their parents' custody.

"This is another example of how the presence of our SRO's in the schools resulted in this crime being solved quickly" said Sheriff William Earl Hilton.
