Deputies Arrest Third Suspect in Home Invasion

After an intense search of a Slidell neighborhood by deputies, the third suspect from a Covington area home invasion has been arrested.

Arrestee: Jonathan “Coffee” Hudson – 200 Nottingham Ln., Slidell (W/M – DOB: 09/26/84)

Sheriff’s Office Investigators focused their search for Hudson Sunday afternoon in the Kingspoint subdivision.  Hudson’s last known address and that of family members was located inside the neighborhood.

During the course of their search, Hudson was forced to flee from the subdivision and into the wooded area that surrounds the neighborhood.  Deputies from the Patrol and K-9 Divisions joined in the search along with the Sheriff’s Office helicopter. 

The search for Hudson continued throughout the night.  Deputies came across a vehicle with its dome light on and a set of license plates inside.  Deputies became suspicious of the vehicle and contacted the owner.  It was discovered that the vehicle was stolen from a residence nearby earlier in the night.

Around 5:00 AM, Hudson contacted the Sheriff’s Office and stated that he could not take the pressure of the manhunt any longer.  He gave his location to deputies and awaited their arrival while lying in the street.  He was taken into custody without incident. 

Hudson confessed to taking the vehicle that deputies found earlier in the night with switched license plates.  He stated that he was afraid to drive out of the neighborhood due to the large Sheriff’s Office presence and abandon the vehicle.

In addition to Hudson’s arrest, investigators arrested three other persons yesterday in connection to the home invasion and brought additional charges against Beau Ledoux and Christopher Allo.

Arrestee: Steve Clark – 309 Somerset Dr., Slidell (W/M – DOB 4/19/83)

Arrestee: Jennica Keebler – 84033 Bozy Mizell Dr., Sun (W/F – DOB 10/14/91)

Arrestee: William Ledoux – 84672 Clarence Rd., Sun (W/M – DOB 11/16/95)
