Four men were arrested on Oct. 16 following burglary of an elderly man in Clayton.

The burglary occurred when the victim was a patient in an Alexandria hospital, said Concordia Parish Sheriff's Office Detective Chris Groh.

Groh said one of the suspects was overheard bragging about the burglary in which a substantial amount of money, guns and jewelry were taken.

Arrested were:

Groh, Lieutenant Detective John Cowan, Agent Lane Norman and Detective Chad Fuqua found a 9-millimeter gun, three .325 automatics, jewelry and marijuana at the residence of one of the alleged perpetrators.
