The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office was called out to LeBleu Settlement on the morning (10:30 am) of October 23, due to a reported home invasion.

According to a media release from Kim Myers of CPSO, the homeowner, who was home alone, explained to deputies that "two men, one wearing a red devil mask and the other wearing a teddy bear mask, and a woman with a scarf wrapped around her face, broke into her residence. One of the men armed was armed with a gun. She told deputies she attempted to fight back but the suspects threatened to shoot her. She stated while inside her home they stole several items, including a safe. The homeowner and a neighbor were able to give a description of the suspects, as well the suspects’ vehicle, which they fled in".

Deputies were able to locate the vehicle driven by the suspects an hour later at a home in Lake Charles, where they also located four people identified as:

  • Kaleigh A. Shelden, 19, 4401 Gladys Street, Lake Charles, La.
  • Areona A. Ardoin, 18, 627 Fall Street, Lake Charles, La.
  • Fabian A. Green, 19, 4834 Opelousas Street, Lake Charles, La.
  • Michael D. Miller, 21, 3658 Outback Lane, Iowa, La.

The suspects were reportedly "standing outside" when deputies arrived. One of the women did not enter the home but was the getaway driver, and all of the stolen items were recovered.

All four suspects were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with "home invasion; armed robbery; armed robbery with the use of a firearm; and theft of a firearm". Green was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Bonds are pending on all four suspects.
