Acadiana crime blotter for Aug. 23, 2014

The Lafayette Metro Narcotics Task Force raided five Lafayette massage parlors Friday suspected as part of a prostitution enterprise, officials said.

Capt. John Babin said an investigation was launched after several complaints from residents. Several arrests were made in the crackdown.

At one of the massage parlors, Fortune Asian Spa on Industrial Parkway, the Louisiana State Board of Massage Therapy issued cease-and-desist letters earlier this year, KATC-TV said.

Man who hitches ride robbed by driver

A Lafayette man was booked for armed robbery Thursday after giving a ride to someone on Aug. 16 then robbing the victim at gunpoint, police said.

The victim asked Joseph Robertson to drive him from Treasure Cove Road to Wal-Mart on Pinhook Road and offered to pay Robertson $20 for the ride, according to police report.

When Robertson pulled his white GMC Yukon into the Burger King across the street, he pulled a handgun out from the driver’s side floor board, the police report states, allegedly telling the victim, “I have that steel; give me all your money.”

The victim told police he threw about $200 at Robertson before hurriedly exiting the vehicle.

Robertson, 31, 513A Bonin Road, was booked into the Lafayette Parish Jail on a warrant for armed robbery.

He is being held on a $75,000 bond.

Driver flees accident, runs into oak tree

A 40-year-old man was arrested Thursday evening who police say crashed into a vehicle in a roundabout, then struck a large oak tree nearby while fleeing.

Phillip Moreau, 40, 204 Salvador Road, was driving east on La. 98 near La. 93 when he drove across the roundabout, ignoring all traffic control devices and struck a vehicle that had the right of way, according to police reports.

Witnesses told police Moreau exited the vehicle after he struck a large oak tree off the roadway and grabbed a 12-pack of beer that he hid in a trash can. The suspect fled on foot before officers arrived on scene.

Police say a half-bottle of vodka was found in the truck.

Moreau was booked into the Lafayette Parish Jail on charges of hit-and-run, careless operation and open container. He is being held on a $1,000 bond.
