The Beauregard Parish Sheriff's Office BPSO is actively pursuing an investigation into an attempted burglary that caused an undisclosed amount of property damage Wednesday morning at a business near Dry Creek.

The suspect was recorded on security cameras attempting to get inside the business through a side door. He then walked to the back of the business and attempted to siphon gasoline from a truck, causing undisclosed damage to the vehicle.
