Subjects Arrested for Bank Fraud on Dec 20, 2013

Date: December 23, 2013

On Friday, December 20, 2013, at 4:56 pm, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to 124 Belle Terre Boulevard in LaPlace, First American Bank and Trust, for the report that an individual was trying to cash a forged check at the drive through widow. Before deputies arrived at the bank, the individual and four other subjects in the car drove away from the drive through window. Witnesses saw the subject that attempted to cash the check exit the vehicle and enter a nearby restaurant. The other subjects in the car drove from the area, but arriving deputies saw the described vehicle and pursued it to the intersection of Percy Hebert Road and Parish Road where the car stopped, and the occupants fled from the vehicle.

Deputies apprehended Clarence Watson, 52, from Lutcher who witnesses saw exit the car and go to the nearby restaurant. He was in possession of several reported stolen checks. Zakendrick Williams, 27, from Lutcher was apprehended on Elm Street after a brief foot pursuit. Deputies apprehended Jarrid Ferrygood, 22, from Vacherie who was driving the car. Ferrygood was hiding under a boat in a shed at a residence on Elm Street.

Deputies apprehended two backseat passengers, Myia Marcell, 20, and George Robinson, 24, nearby without incident. After detectives interviewed Marcell and Robinson, the two subjects were released.


The investigation is ongoing, and as the investigation develops, detectives anticipated more arrests are forthcoming.
