Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced a man was arrested for threatening a woman at gunpoint on Friday, April 19. Keith Arcement, 36, faces additional charges due to being prohibited from possessing firearms.
At around 1:15 p.m. on April 19, 2019, deputies received a call that Arcement was pointing a gun at a woman at a residence on Danos Street in Raceland. Deputies learned Arcement was asking the woman for the location of a gun and other items, and he reportedly threatened to kill her. When deputies arrived, they found Arcement hiding in a closet, and he was taken into custody. Deputies found six firearms in Arcement’s possession at the residence, one of which was found to have been reported stolen.
