Youngsville was struck again by car burglaries overnight and three men were arrested for the break-ins.
On Friday at 3:02 a.m., Youngsville Police were dispatched to the 200 block of Brook Hill Drive in the Copper Meadows Subdivision in reference to three suspicious men walking around the neighborhood, according to Chief Rickey Boudreaux. The caller advised law enforcement that the last location he observed the suspects were on Sweetwater Creek. Responding Officers responded to that location and upon arriving in the area made visual contact with the three suspects, stated Boudreaux. Officers identified themselves and instructed the suspects to stop. Officers said all three suspects ran from the officers, and a foot pursuit ensued. Two of the suspects were apprehended and taken into custody. One suspect remained at large, said the chief.
At 9:30 a.m., the third suspect was located on Lafayette Street in Youngsville and was taken into custody. The case continued to be worked by Detectives and Officers of the Youngsville Police Department with assistance from Deputies from the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, said Chief Boudreaux.
As a result of the investigation conducted, all three suspects were booked into the Lafayette Parish Jail.
The suspects are identified as Isaiah Martin, 20; Aspen Jean-Batiste, 21; and Holden Kane Jules Guidry, 19.
All three suspects have been charged with several vehicle burglaries, resisting officers by flight, simple criminal damage to property, simple possession of marijuana, theft of a firearm, and felon in possession of a firearm.
Boudreaux said in addition to clearing cases in the City of Youngsville, this investigation has also cleared vehicle burglaries that occurred in the City of Broussard.
The investigation is ongoing with the hopes of clearing more cases and possibly making more arrest, added Chief Boudreaux.
