GONZALES, La. – Police arrested the suspected 'Brownie Bandit,' a man accused of repeatedly breaking into a bakery, stealing freshly baked brownies and leaving behind crumbs and broken windows. Gonzales police said Jamon J. Simoneaux, 18, had a bag full of brownies when he was arrested Thursday in Jumonville's Bakery.
Bakery owner Lynn Jumonville told The Advocate he called police after the cost of broken windows and screens began to mount. He said the burglar would break in about 8:30 or 9 p.m.
Police booked Simoneaux on six counts of simple burglary and four of simple criminal damage to property.
Lynn and wife Pat Jumonville estimate that he took about 12 dozen brownies and about two dozen sugar cookies.
