Laken Virginia Smith, 18, was arrested Saturday and booked into the Union Parish Detention Center. Her bond was set at $4,600.
Detectives had been investigating a burglary on Camp Road near Farmerville beginning January 20 and had developed Smith as a possible suspect.
Smith was read her Miranda rights before being questioned and admitted to detectives that she forced open a door on a mobile home. After entering, Smith said she removed a drawer from the chest that contained some $200 in coins.
She did not get the job.
