According to St. Mary Parish Sheriff Mark Hebert, over the last 24 hour reporting period the Sheriff's Office responded to 50 complaints and reports the following arrests:
Christa N. Yarbrough, 27, 3624 Lake Palourde Road, Amelia, LA was arrested on May 5, 2014 at 9:36 am on a warrant for obstruction of justice. A deputy located Yarbrough at her residence on the warrant. The warrant stems from an April 16, 2014 investigation into the aggravated rape of a juvenile female. During the course of the investigation, Yarbrough claimed to know nothing of the crime. Detectives later discovered several communications indicating that Yarbrough purposefully denied having any knowledge of the crime. She was transported to the parish jail for booking and incarceration. Yarbrough was later released on a recognizance bond.
Veyonca Salazar, 49, 131 Lagonda Lane, Bayou Vista, LA was arrested on May 5, 2014 at 7:16 pm for disturbing the peace (intoxicated) and resisting an officer. A deputy responded to a complaint of a disturbance at a residence on Lagonda Lane. The deputy made contact with Salazar and smelled the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on her person. The deputy learned that Salazar came out of her residence and was yelling and cursing at a neighbor. The deputy advised Salazar to go inside her residence for the evening. Salazar stated that she would comply. Shortly after the deputy departed, the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office received a second complaint of a disturbance on Lagonda Lane. During the subsequent investigation, Salazar repeatedly yelled racial slurs and cursed at the neighbor and the deputy. While being placed under arrest, Salazar attempted to slam the door of her residence closed in an attempt to keep the deputy out. The deputy transported Salazar to the parish jail for booking and incarceration. Salazar's bond is set at $1,500.
