DEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - On Saturday October 12th, Rapides Parish Sheriffs Office deputies responded to a burglary on highway 1207 in Deville. 
Upon arrival, deputies learned from the victim approximately $10,000 in hand tools and power equipment had been taken from a work shop.  Several items including power tools, Honda generators, a welding machine and pressure washers were taken.  Detectives also responded to the scene and determined that a trailer was possibly used to remove the items. 
On October 15th, deputies initiated a routine traffic stop on a vehicle for failing to use their turn signal.  Deputies said they contacted the driver, identified as Bradley Scott Guin, 40 of Deville and noticed some marijuana and burnt copper in the back seat of his vehicle.  Believing there was more to this, deputies transported Guin to the Deville Substation to speak with the detective assigned to the burglary.  Through their investigation, detectives learned information and locations of the stolen property from the highway 1207 incident and three additional burglaries.  Detectives obtained search warrants for four separate locations and recovered most of the missing property. 
"This type of proactive police work lead to the solving of this and other crimes in the Deville area.  Daytime burglaries are one of our biggest problems and our deputies are actively patrolling and looking for these suspects" said Sheriff William Earl Hilton.
