The St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office has arrested a Lafayette woman who was the last of four suspects wanted in a May 15 home invasion in Cankton.

Jessica Rose-Puckett, 26, was booked Wednesday on counts of home invasion, false imprisonment with a firearm, attempted first-degree murder and criminal conspiracy. She was the last remaining suspect officials were pursuing in investigating the invasion, Capt. Megan Vizena said in a news release.
