Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced the arrest of Perry McMillon (age 18) of Raceland on Monday, August 24. McMillon, a convicted felon, was found illegally carrying a firearm, and he had several active warrants out of Terrebonne Parish.
At around 4:45 p.m. on Monday, April 24, deputies observed a man, later identified as McMillon, and a small child riding an all-terrain vehicle on the roadway near the intersection of St. Phillip Street and Meadow Lane in Raceland. Deputies conducted a stop of the vehicle and made contact with McMillon. Deputies noticed a bulge in the area of McMillon’s waistband and told him to place his hands on the vehicle. As deputies attempted to grab his hands, McMillon began to flee on foot. Deputies pursued but eventually lost sight of him. A short time later, deputies located McMillon hiding in an SUV nearby, and he was taken into custody.
