Lafayette crime blotter for July 9, 2014

Fund set up for nine orphaned siblings

A bank fund has been set up for the nine siblings orphaned last week in an act of domestic violence.

“The 9 Children’s Fund” was opened for the Varis children, ages 5 to 19, who lost their mother and father Friday night, Opelousas Police Chief Perry Gallow announced Tuesday.

Those who wish to contribute can deposit funds at St. Landry Bank under account number 10082022.

Police said Kerry J. Varis, 36, was despondent over his wife’s plan to divorce him. The couple and some of their children were at a gathering July 4 with extended family when Varis used a .38-caliber handgun to shoot Nancy Varis before he killed himself. Nancy Varis died later at a hospital.

Man booked following Monday fracas

A Patterson man who told police he had smoked synthetic marijuana was booked into the Morgan City jail Monday after he drove into three cars and residential shrubbery, screamed incoherently after he got out and walked about partially clothed, then was shoved and injured when he approached a scared bystander, police said.

Kilo White, 24, was booked on counts of driving while intoxicated, reckless operation of a vehicle, no driver’s license, no vehicle insurance and simple criminal damage to property, Morgan City Capt. James Blair said.

The series of incidents occurred in mid-afternoon, with police receiving reports at 3:43 p.m. of vehicle crashes in the 100 block of Glenwood Street.

Witnesses told police White had driven fast and erratically, crashing into cars and landscaped shrubs and bushes, Blair said.

A witness told police he was scared enough of White to push him away and into a utility trailer. White sustained an injury to his face when he fell against a utility trailer, Blair said in a news release.

White was treated and released from Teche Regional Hospital, then booked into the Morgan City jail.

“White advised officers that he had consumed synthetic marijuana prior to the incident,” Blair said.
