WBR captures four during home invasion

West Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputies were led on a chase Thursday morning after four suspects were caught breaking into a home on Colonial Drive.

Three of the men were booked into the parish jail Thursday afternoon while the fourth was admitted to a hospital and treated for injuries he sustained when he was bitten by a police dog as he tried to escape.

Quindell Webb, 23, of Baton Rouge, was booked on simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and aggravated flight from an officer. Dymarco Hills, 18, 2150 N. Sherwood Blvd., Baton Rouge, and Darius Barnes, 24, 2317 Cedarcrest Ave., Baton Rouge, were each booked on counts of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and resisting arrest.

The name of the fourth man was not released Thursday afternoon.

Sheriff Mike Cazes said deputies were called to the site of a home invasion after receiving a 911 call at around 10:45 a.m. Thursday from a neighbor who reported seeing two suspicious cars parked in the driveway of his neighbor’s house.

The neighbor also reported seeing a man walking out of the home dressed in a hoodie.

Deputies arrived at the home about three minutes later and caught three men trying to flee the home through a back window they kicked out when police arrived, Cazes said.

The suspect not identified was immediately captured when he was bitten by a police dog.

Webb hopped in one of the getaway cars and fled. Cazes said he was captured moments later when he crashed the car near the U.S. 190 Bridge at La. 1.

Hills, who fled on foot, was captured by deputies down the street at a nearby Baptist church. The sheriff said Hills tried to blend in with a funeral procession that was going on at the church.

Deputies found Barnes hiding under a pile of clothes in the bathroom of the residence, Cazes said.

The sheriff said the four men took two flat-screen televisions and had a pillowcase full of jewelry and other items they took from the residence.

Port Allen High School was on lockdown for approximately 15 minutes while police pursued the suspects, Superintendent David Corona said.
