CROWLEY, LA (KADN) — Two men have been arrested for a rash of crimes over the past several months
On December 24, Lafayette Police officers arrived at house in the 1200 block of Lurose Drive, after receiving a call of a possible stolen vehicle.
According to police, officers saw someone enter the home, when the officers arrived at 5 a.m. Officers then surrounded the house and spotted two suspects trying to escape out the back door.
The suspects ran back into the house, upon seeing police. They were later found in the attic and arrested.
The two suspects were identified as Kevin Wilson, 21, and Gregory Windbush Jr, 17.
Kevin Wilson was arrested on a slew of charges including: motor vehicle theft, unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, armed robbery, illegal use of a weapon, aggravated criminal damage to property and unauthorized use of an access card, and other crimes Crowley Police would not disclose. Probation and Parole is being placed on hold since Wilson was already on probation.
Crowley Police Chief K.P. Gibson said Wilson’s arrest was extremely important, “as he has been terrorizing residents in our community with his criminal activity.”
Gregory Winbush Jr was charged with multiple counts of stolen property and unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.
After Wilson and Windbush were detained, officers found a second vehicle stolen from Abbeville. Other property from the vehicle thefts was located in the home.
Both were booked into the Acadia Parish Jail.
A third person, Allegra Wilson, 18, was arrested for obstruction of justice. Police say she withheld information from their investigation.
