Posted: Updated:

NATCHITOCHES PARISH, La. (KALB NEWS CHANNEL 5) - A Montgomery man who was supposedly watching over a friend's residence has been arrested in connection with items stolen from the residence.

According to the Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Office, on December 18th, 2013, at approximately 9:20 a.m., NPSO deputies responded to a reported theft in the 400 block of Kayla Drive in Natchitoches.

Deputies learned while talking with the complainant, that while he was out-of-town between the dates of November 23rd through 31st, 2013 working, he left his residence in the care of a caretaker. The caretaker was also left in charge of taking care of the victim's dogs.

Deputies also learned that when the victim returned to his residence on November 31st, he discovered a Craftsman lawn mower, iPhone 3S, and a Toro weed-eater valued at approximately $920.00 dollars missing.

The victim also discovered that his vehicle had been used unauthorized after finding the fuel level on empty, when he allegedly left it full of fuel.

The case was then assigned to the NPSO Criminal Investigations Division for investigative purposes.

NPSO said during the course of the investigation, detectives identified that caretaker as John Boudion, whom had ties to the Montgomery, Campti, Natchitoches, and Natchez areas.

Detectives continued the investigation and developed sufficient probable cause to obtain criminal warrants signed by a Tenth Judicial District Court Judge for Boudion's arrest.

Deputies searched for Boudion but were unable to locate at that time.

Deputies then issued a regional BOLO, entering Boudion into the National Crime Information Center as being a wanted person.

During the early morning hours of Sunday morning February 16th, NPSO Criminal Patrol Deputies were working in North Natchitoches Parish near Campti when they ran a vehicle license plate that led them to Boudion.

Deputies say they positively identified Boudion, but he resisted by entering a residence.   Additional units responded to the scene to assist.

Deputies say Boudion resisted for a short time before exiting and surrendering before additional units arrived on scene.

Boudion was then taken in custody.

As a result of the investigation, deputies arrested:

John Boudion, 51 of the 100 block of Byonne Road, Montgomery, booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center charged with 1-count of Unauthorized Use of a Moveable, 1-count of Theft over $500, and 1-count of Resisting Arrest.

According to NPSO, Boudion has a prior criminal history.

He remains in the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center awaiting bond.
