Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced a fourth person has been arrested and charged in connection to an armed robbery that occurred at a Bayou Blue residence in January. Rondraye Turner (B/M, D.O.B. 07/26/92) of 3717 Baker Drive in Houma was booked in Lafourche Parish on Monday on several felony warrants after being arrested by Houma Police during a Mardi Gras parade this past weekend.
Detectives believe Turner stole a vehicle from the residence while three other men fled in another vehicle. Deputies arrested Kyle McMillian (B/M, D.O.B. 03/09/92), Desmond Kennedy (B/M, D.O.B. 09/07/89), and Antony Knockum (B/M, D.O.B. 06/09/93), shortly after the incident and charged each with armed robbery, use of a firearm during an armed robbery, home invasion, and aggravated flight from an officer. Turner faces those same charges, as well as an additional charge for theft of a motor vehicle.
Through investigation, detectives learned that during the early morning hours of Monday, January 21, the four men arrived at a residence on St. Marie Drive in Bayou Blue where several other people were present. Carrying firearms, the men allegedly kicked in the front door and proceeded to take items from the residence and the individuals. Upon leaving the residence, Turner allegedly stole a vehicle parked at the residence while the other three men left in the vehicle in which they had arrived there. Deputies responded and spotted McMillian, Kennedy and Knockum in a vehicle at the intersection of LA Highway 316 and LA Highway 182. When they saw deputies, the suspects accelerated and continued eastbound on LA 182 toward Raceland. The driver ignored deputies and continued by turning northbound onto LA Highway 1 towards Thibodaux. Deputies deployed spike strips near St. Charles Bypass Road piercing two of the suspect’
s tires. The three men continued along despite two deflated tires, but eventually came to a stop near Audubon Drive in Thibodaux where deputies took the three men into custody. Meanwhile, the stolen vehicle was recovered a few hours later when deputies found it parked at a residence on St. Patrick Drive in Schriever.
Detectives further learned Turner was the fourth suspect and warrants were issued for his arrest. He also had existing warrants for aggravated assault with a firearm, illegal use of weapons, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession with intent to distribute Roxicodone and Suboxone, and simple criminal damage to property. The charges stem from incidents dating back to July 2012.
Houma Police arrested Turner on the active warrants from Lafourche Parish after locating him during a Mardi Gras parade this past weekend. He was transferred to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux and booked on all active warrants. Turner is being held in lieu of $654,500 bond. Meanwhile, Kennedy also remains in jail on $201,500 bond, and McMillian and Knockum are being held in lieu of $200,000 bond.
