A second arrest was made in an ongoing investigation for conspiracy to commit second-degree murder.

Roland Bernard III was arrested in November after investigators intercepted information that Bernard was engaging in methods to have others commit second-degree murder.

Earlier this week the Vermilion Parish Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division along with the Narcotics Task Force arrested a 17-year-old suspect.

The teen has also been charged with conspiracy to commit second-degree murder and was immediately transported to a juvenile detention center in Mississippi where he awaits the next process in the juvenile court system.

This case is still ongoing and more arrests are possible.
