Local authorities from Houston River Road in Westlake responded to a complaint where a generator costing around $1,200 was stolen and located on Eddy Street in Lake Charles with the use of the GPS tracker installed on it.
Cmdr. James McGee, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman said that when they arrived at the said location, they found the missing generator as well as a second one belonging to the same business. The company said that they were not aware that it was missing since they have lost signal for the second generator around March.
George Edwards, III, 31, and Joey P. Hanchett, 36 were arrested after questioning on one count each of theft between $1,000 and $5,000. A bond of $10,000 was set by Judge David Ritchie.
