GONZALES, LA (NBC33) — A 19-year-old from Gonzales was arrested over the weekend for armed robbery.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office reports that the incident occurred on Saturday, April 13. Officials say the investigation began after the home owner reported that an intruder broke into the home.
Reports say the suspect pulled out a gun and demanded the victim to get on the floor. However, the victim allegedly escaped and called law enforcement.
Deputies located Jamie Allen, Jr., in a wooded area near the victim’s home. When deputies approached him, he took off running.
Once captured, deputies say Allen had several items on him that were allegedly taken from the home of the victim.
Allen was arrested and charged with Home Invasion, Armed Robbery, Illegal Carrying of a Weapon, Theft, and Resisting an Officer.
