DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -

Three teens are behind bars after being accused of burglarizing multiple homes in the Denham Springs area.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office responded to calls between midnight and 3 a.m. Monday of unknown suspects entering into homes while the residents were asleep. The burglaries were reported on Tara Drive and New Hope Avenue in the Plantation Garden Homes Subdivision and on Hermitage Drive in the Plantation Estates Subdivision.

LPSO responded to the area and motioned for a vehicle to stop that was leaving the area of the burglaries. Instead of stopping, the vehicle took off in an attempt to elude deputies. The vehicle crashed and the three occupants took off on foot. Two were arrested immediately and the third was arrested later in the same area.

The vehicle they were in was reported stolen. One of the suspects was found with a weapon on him. A stolen weapon was also recovered from inside the stolen vehicle.

During the investigation, deputies learned the three suspects were staying at a local hotel. During the search of the hotel room, deputies found stolen property, including iPhones, weapons, pill bottles, cash and jewelry.

Hayven Nugent, 17, of Rayne is charged with aggravated flight from an officer, aggravated obstruction of a highway, hit and run driving, illegal possession of a stolen firearm, resisting an officer, three counts of aggravated burglary, and felony theft of a motor vehicle. He is currently in the Livingston Parish Detention Center on a $226,500 bond.

Kemo Amos, 17, of Maurice was charged with resisting an officer, three counts of aggravated burglary, illegal possession of a stolen firearm, and felony theft of a motor vehicle. He is currently in the Livingston Parish Detention Center on a $200,500 bond.

A 16-year-old male was also arrested. His name has not been released. He is charged with three counts of aggravated burglary, felony theft of a motor vehicle, and illegal possession of a stolen firearm. He is currently in a juvenile detention center.
