Investigators have arrested a third suspect in connection to multiple burglaries across two parishes after his accomplice was caught following a high speed chase in Denham Springs. 

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office reported Patrick Booker Jr., 21, and Cedric Walker, both of Baton Rouge, face theft and burglary charges. They are accused of numerous burglaries in East Baton Rouge and Livingston parishes.

According to the warrant for Booker’s arrest, which was issued by EBRSO, detectives were helping deputies with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office investigate several burglaries and Booker was identified as a suspect.

LPSO booked Booker on four counts of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, aggravated flight from an officer, and resisting arrest after leading law enforcement on the high-speed chase. Another person, 24-year-old Charlie Matthews, was also arrested in connection to the high speed chase and burglary on Thursday, January 28. 

Investigators said Booker told them that he and Walker broke into numerous houses in the Central area, specifically the Magnolia Bend Subdivision. They added Walker was arrested later that day and booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.

According to documents, Walker gave permission to search his home and detectives reported finding some of the items stolen from homes in Magnolia Bend, including handguns and electronics. Officials said Walker admitted committing burglaries with Booker.

Walker was booked on charges of criminal damage to property, simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, felony theft, aggravated burglary and theft of a firearm. Walker's bond was set at $85,000.

Officials said Booker will face similar charges to Walker's in East Baton Rouge Parish. Booker's bond is currently set $101,000.
