At around 10:15 p.m. on Saturday, July 20, deputies responded to a call following an incident which had just occurred in Thibodaux wherein a man assaulted another man with a firearm. Deputies learned Blaine Bergeron (W/M, D.O.B. 09/06/89) and the victim were at a party with several people at a residence on St. Charles Bypass Road when an argument began between two people at the party. The man who would later be the assault victim allegedly stepped in to break up the argument, and he was then approached by Bergeron who began yelling at him. Bergeron eventually walked to his vehicle and retrieved a semi-automatic pistol from the trunk. He then allegedly approached the victim and placed the gun to his chest threatening to kill him. The victim was able to grab the gun and a struggle ensued. Eventually, the man was able to separate from Bergeron and left the party. Deputies began searching the area of St. Charles Bypass Road for the suspect. They located the Bergerons vehicle and performed a traffic stop. Upon stopping the vehicle, deputies discovered another subject was driving the vehicle, but Bergeron was in the passenger seat. He was placed under arrest, but refused several times to comply with deputies orders in the process. Deputies located the pistol in the trunk and secured it as evidence. Bergeron, of 1429 Ridgefield Avenue, Apartment B in Thibodaux, was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center where he was booked with aggravated assault with a firearm and resisting an officer. He is being held in lieu of $52,000 bond as set by Judge Ashly Bruce Simpson.
At around 3:45 a.m. on Sunday, July 21, deputies responded to a call of a possible burglary in progress at a snowball stand on LA Highway 1 in Raceland. Upon arrival, deputies did not locate the suspect, but did find evidence of an attempted burglary. An exterior window and door had been damaged in what appeared to be an attempt by someone to gain entry to the building. Deputies then met with the individual who had reported the incident, and they learned the suspect had left the scene walking south along LA 1. After obtaining a description of the subject, deputies fanned out around the area and eventually located a person matching the description of the suspect less than a mile from the snowball stand. The subject was identified as Kryn Toups (W/M, D.O.B. 12/05/94) of 498 St. Ann Street in Raceland. During an interview with deputies, Toups admitted to causing the damage discovered by deputies at the snowball stand. Toups was arrested and transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center where he was booked with one count of attempted simple burglary of an immovable structure. He is being held in lieu of $10,000 bond as set by Judge Simpson. He is also being held for Louisiana Probation and Parole.
