By Bonnie Culverhouse

Webster Parish Sheriff’s investigators have arrested a local man who allegedly stole from his employer.

Chazzsmun Lewis, 30, of the 200 block of Walter Lyons Rd., Minden, is charged with simple burglary and felony theft.

Sheriff Jason Parker said the local business owner checked his surveillance cameras when he realized items were missing.

“The cameras showed Lewis inside the business after hours removing tools, safety equipment and numerous other items,” Parker said. “Lewis signed a search warrant waiver and all the items were recovered from the trunk of his vehicle in the business parking lot.”

A generator was reportedly recovered from a house across the road from Lewis’ residence.

Estimated value of all items was $4,300. Lewis reportedly confessed to taking the items, was booked and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
