The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in locating an armed robbery suspect and stolen motorcycle.
Shortly after midnight Monday morning (June 11) two black males held a man at gunpoint at a Slidell-area gas station and stole his black 2014 Suzuki GSXR 1000.
The motorcycle resembles the one pictured here (photo used for reference only). It was bearing LA license plate MC634441 and was last seen traveling west on I-10 toward New Orleans.
While one of the suspects left the gas station on the stolen motorcycle, the second fled in a yellow Chevrolet Camaro. The Camaro was located on the interstate by responding deputies, and after a brief pursuit, the vehicle was stopped. Its driver, a 15-year-old juvenile from New Orleans, was taken into custody without incident. The Camaro, which was reported stolen, had been used in another armed robbery Sunday (June 10) in Houston, Texas.
The juvenile was booked into the Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center on the following charges:
LRS 14:64 Armed Robbery
LRS 14:69 Illegal Possession of Stolen Things
LRS 14:108.1 Aggravated Flight from an Officer
LRS 40:969C Possession of Schedule IV
LRS 40:966C Possession of Schedule I
The second suspect, who fled the scene on the motorcycle, was described as a black male with braided hair, wearing a white T-shirt and black pants.
