BELLE ROSE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon
reports the arrest of two Belle Rose men on armed robbery counts and the
subsequent arrest of a Pierre Part man on burglary charges in a related case.
Detectives learned the shotgun involved in the armed
robbery case had similarities to a shotgun stolen in a Pierre Part
burglary. Investigators then questioned
one of the victims of the armed robbery and determined the shot gun involved in
the armed robbery case was indeed the same gun stolen in a Pierre Part business
burglary earlier last month. As a result
of the investigation Jai’eres Bright, 19, of 108 Blackwell Lane and Bruce
Landry, 21, of 191 Grisaffe Lane were charged with armed robbery and jailed
pending a bail hearing.
Joshua Repp, 17, of 119 Oak Lane, Pierre Part, LA,
acknowledged his participation in the Pierre Part case and his attempt to sell
the shotgun in Belle Rose. A 16-year-old
was also identified as having been involved in the Pierre Part burglary.
Repp and the juvenile were booked with the Simple
Burglary. Repp was released on bond and
the juvenile was released to his parents.
