When deputies arrived on scene, they learned that an unknown male suspect entered a residence through a back door and was immediately confronted by the homeowner and then the suspect fled the area on foot without taking anything.

As the investigation began it was learned that the two suspects also committed several unlocked vehicle burglaries in the same subdivision and two additional unlocked vehicle burglaries on Oak Path Court in Prairieville.

Video surveillance shows two suspects entering unlocked vehicles and taking items and walking out of the view of the video camera.
