College Drive killing suspect sought
Police are looking for a man accused in a Saturday shooting on College Drive that killed one man and wounded another, a Baton Rouge police spokesman said.
Chattley Chesterfield, 17, is wanted on one count each of first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and illegal use of a dangerous weapon, Lt. Don Kelly said in a news release.
Chesterfield is described as black, 6 feet tall and 150 pounds, Kelly said. His last known address is 1454 Jordan St.
The shooting occurred about 2:30 a.m. Saturday in the 3000 block of College Drive, at the road’s intersection with Rabey Street, which is near Interstate 10, police have said.
One of the victims, Jordan Key, 18, 9124 Delmar St., was found dead in a car, police have said. Another man in the car was wounded but is expected to live.
Michael Francois was arrested Sunday for allegedly driving the getaway car after the shooting. Francois 23, 3285 N. Ardenwood Drive, No. 8, was booked into Parish Prison on counts of accessory to first-degree murder and accessory to attempted first-degree murder.
According to a warrant for his arrest, Chesterfield got out of a car driven by Francois, walked over to the other car and fired several shots into it. After the shooting, Francois drove himself, Chesterfield and a third suspect from the scene, the warrant says.

Man arrested in case
of hidden cameras
Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 31-year-old man Sunday accused of spying on his estranged wife in her home using secret surveillance equipment he set up in the house, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
Brian A. Moser, 10448 Jefferson Highway, Apt. E, was booked into Parish Prison on one count of video voyeurism.
His wife contacted the Sheriff’s Office on May 24 after finding a purchase order in her attic from Sept. 11 for four small spy cameras, four 50-foot video cables and a digital video recorder, the affidavit says.
Deputies discovered video cables had been run into the kitchen and the master bedroom, the affidavit says. The digital video recorder and cameras were not found in the house.
The wife told deputies Moser moved out in August but still had a key, so he came in and out periodically, sometimes without her knowledge, the affidavit says.
The wife also said she and Moser got into an argument in December, during which Moser accused her of sleeping with another man and told her he hired a private investigator to follow her, the affidavit says.
Deputies talked to Moser at his home June 21, and he told them he installed the surveillance equipment to prevent his property still inside the home from being removed, the affidavit says.
Moser told deputies he only watched some of the video before turning it over to his divorce attorney, the affidavit says.
Deputies eventually found the digital video recorder in Moser’s home and the cameras at his workplace, the affidavit says.
Real trouble begins when fake cash found
Police arrested a 30-year-old woman Tuesday after finding $1,000 in counterfeit cash in her vehicle, a police spokesman said.
Police found the fake money a few days after stopping Kristie Harrington in the 10000 block of Coursey Boulevard for an expired inspection sticker, Cpl. L’Jean McKneely said.
Officers discovered Harrington also had no insurance and was driving with a suspended driver’s license, McKneely said. Because she was driving without insurance, police towed Harrington’s vehicle.
Police later searched Harrington’s vehicle and found the $1,000 in fake U.S. currency, McKneely said.
Harrington, 1201 N. Foster Drive, was booked into Parish Prison on 95 counts of monetary instrument abuse.
