On January 13, 2021, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives were dispatched to a business on Enterprise Boulevard in Lake Charles regarding a theft that occurred earlier that morning.
Detectives viewed surveillance footage and observed a pickup truck pulling a trailer arrive at the business. Two suspects exited the truck and began loading approximately $2,000 worth of roofing materials from the business. Another suspect was observed to walk up and help load the materials onto the trailer.
One of the suspects was identified as Marvin C. Paddio, 63, of Lake Charles. Further investigation revealed the truck seen in the surveillance footage belonged to Paddio. A short time later detectives located Paddio, and the truck seen in the surveillance footage, at his residence.
Paddio was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with theft from $1,000 to $5,000. He was released the following day on a $7,500 bond set by Judge Tony Fazzio.
The investigation is continuing and more arrests are expected.
