On Monday, September 15, 2014, at 4:33 pm, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 8000 block of Sunnyside Drive in Reserve for the report of a fight and a juvenile that was in possession of a firearm. When deputies arrived in the area, witnesses identified a 14-year-old boy as the juvenile who possessed a pistol. The juvenile told deputies that he was armed with a pistol, but he put the pistol in his residence before deputies arrived. Deputies accompanied the juvenile to his residence where deputies recovered the pistol that the juvenile possessed.
The juvenile told deputies that at about 4:20 pm at the intersection of Sunnyside Drive and Grant Drive a male subject pointed a pistol at him and grabbed his cell phone from his hands. The juvenile went home to get his father’s pistol and returned to the corner looking for the subject that robbed him. Juvenile detectives were notified of the incident for further investigation.
Deputies arrested the 14-year-old boy and booked him with illegal possession of a handgun by a juvenile. He was released to the custody of a parent.
