THIBODAUX –  April 2, 2015

A Thibodaux man with a long criminal history was sentenced to ten years in prison for the simple burglary of a vehicle at a March 20 sentencing hearing.

Scott Brown had previously been convicted of the crime following a January 28 bench trial conducted before the Hon. F. Hugh Larose. Brown was accused of entering a vehicle parked under a carport at a Ledet Street residence and stealing house keys and a GPS. Brown was identified as a possible suspect after he was identified by a witness during another burglary that same evening.

Fingerprints taken from the scene of the Ledet Street burglary placed Brown at the scene of that crime.
