CHALMETTE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - St. Bernard Parish Sheriff James Pohlmann says his son has been arrested.

The sheriff says 27-year-old Justin Pohlmann was arrested Thursday on a warrant charging him with burglarizing a home and garage in Chalmette.

The senior Pohlmann issued a statement blaming his son's behavior on a "substance abuse problem which has returned," and requested privacy.

Justin Pohlmann was booked with one count of burglary and two counts of misdemeanor theft, the Sheriff's Office said. He surrendered to authorities and was booked into St. Bernard Parish Prison.

It was unclear whether Justin Pohlmann has an attorney.
