Covington, La — St. Tammany Sheriff’s detectives have arrested two Covington-area men and are searching for a third man in connection with a home invasion in the River Oaks subdivision in early May.
Working with agents from the Louisiana Office of Probation and Parole, detectives developed information over the weekend identifying Beau Ledoux, 20, of Sun, as one of the suspects who entered a Covington area home May 4 and held four adults and one juvenile for more than two hours, demanding money they believed to be in the home.
Ledoux was taken into custody by deputies without incident at his home in Sun on June 1. During questioning by detectives, Ledoux admitted his role in the incident.
Investigators also determined that Chris Allo, 34, of Covington, arranged and planned the crime, while Ledoux and Jonathan “Coffee” Hudson, 27, of Slidell, were in the home during the incident.
Chris Allo, 34, of Covington, was subsequently taken into custody without incident at his home; he was uncooperative with detectives prior to his arrest.
Ledoux was charged with Home Invasion and Theft of a Motor Vehicle. He is currently being held in the St. Tammany Parish Jail on a $250,000 bond.
Allo was charged with Criminal Conspiracy. His bond has also been set at $250,000.
Investigators are attempting to locate Hudson. He is a white male, 6’2”, 220 pounds. He has an extensive history involving burglary and theft. He is believed to be armed and dangerous.
Additional charges are expected to be brought on Ledoux and Allo, and Hudson upon his capture.
