GONZALES — Five people involved in a home-invasion armed robbery on Ashland Road in Ascension Parish earlier this month have been booked or will be booked on attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery and other counts, sheriff’s deputies said Monday.
The group entered the mobile home in Ascension Parish yelling, “Police, get down,” and demanded money early on Oct. 10.
Multiple gunshots were fired and the trailer’s occupant, Brent “Smoke” York, was shot in the leg, deputies have said.
Sheriff’s Maj. Kevin Hanna said in a news release Monday that York, 34, 9370 Ashland Road, Gonzales, was recently released from the hospital and arrested on illegal drug counts.
Deputies found a stolen gun and a large amount of drugs in York’s mobile home after the shooting, a discovery that also led to the arrest Oct. 10 of four others on similar drug counts, who were present during the armed robbery.
Sheriff’s investigators have also learned that one of the armed robbery suspects, Shalen Theriot, 38, 15861 Gaylord Oak Road, Walker, was also shot, though it is not clear who shot him, deputies said.
Three of the armed robbery suspects were arrested and booked in Ascension Parish Prison on Oct. 18-19, with counts of attempted first-degree murder, armed robbery, armed robbery with a firearm and home invasion and remained in jail Monday with bail of $265,000 to $350,000.
Those suspects are Shalen Theriot; Kristen Theriot, 26, 29741 Cedar St., Livingston; and Bryan Richard, 52, 2710 Live Oak St., Brusly, deputies said.
Two other suspects, Mickey Comeaux, 35, and his brother, Darrell Comeaux, 38, both of 2265 Live Oak Road, Brusly, are being held in other jails on unrelated counts.
They will be transferred to Ascension Parish at a later date to be booked on the same counts as the other three, deputies said.
York was booked on counts of distribution or manufacture or possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine; single counts of possession of MDMA, marijuana, steroids, Oxycodone and Xanax; illegal possession of a stolen weapon; illegal carrying of a weapon; carrying of a firearm by a convicted felon; and prohibited acts/drug paraphernalia, deputies said.
