LIVINGSTON PARISH, LA (WAFB) -

A Walker, LA man is behind bars after a DNA profile linked him to the burglaries of a Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office vehicle and a Baton Rouge Police Department vehicle that happened on January 2, 2013.

The burglaries both happened on Magnolia Drive in Walker, LA. Numerous items were taken, including firearms and items specific to law enforcement, from both vehicles.

On January 7, 2013, Detectives with Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office, Louisiana State Police and Walker Police Department went to a home in the 28000 block of Magnolia Drive in Walker.  This was based on a DNA profile provided by the LSP Crime Lab, which had been obtained from the crime scene. 

The suspect was identified as 26-year-old Joseph Baldwin. During the investigation, Baldwin was arrested for numerous offenses (listed below).

Officials say Baldwin tried to find the stolen items by providing investigators with the last known location of the stolen items in surrounding parishes.  During the course of the investigation, the suspect's father, Warren Baldwin, and uncle, Robert Baldwin, were also arrested for their involvement in regards to stolen property.

Joseph Baldwin, 26, of Walker was arrested for possession of marijuana, two counts of simple burglary of a law enforcement vehicle, five counts of simple burglary of a vehicle, handling of a machine gun unlawfully, and an unrelated traffic warrant. His bond has been set at $151,193.50. Baldwin remains in the Livingston Parish Detention Center.

Robert Baldwin, 65, of Napoleonville has been booked into the Assumption Parish Jail by LSP for illegal possession of a stolen firearm. He was also booked in the Livingston Parish Detention Center for accessory after the fact of simple burglary of a law enforcement vehicle. He has bonded out of the Livingston Parish Detention Center.

Warren Baldwin, 57, of Prairieville was booked into the Ascension Parish Detention Center by Louisiana State Police on obstruction of justice, illegal possession of a stolen firearm. His Ascension Parish bond is $100,000 and he remains in the Ascension Parish Detention Center.       

At this time, detectives are still investigating the whereabouts of stolen items.
