Habitual felony offender on parole for burglary and attempted distribution of marijuana arrested again

Kenner-On Tuesday, January 1, 2013, at 05:35 a.m., the Kenner Police Department responded to the 2700 block of Salem Street, in reference to a complaint received by a residential owner, reporting that someone had entered his residence and was still inside.  The home owner reported arriving home to find the upstairs light on inside his residence.  Upon entering, the owner could hear someone rummaging around in an upstairs bedroom, at which time he exited the residence and called for police assistance. 

 Upon officers’ arrival, officers established a perimeter and entered the residence.  Inside the residence, they found Latrail Williams, 34, who provided a home address of 2724 Salem Street, Kenner, hidden underneath a bed in an upstairs bedroom.  Williams was taken into custody after he resisted arrest and was subsequently detained.  Williams was charged with the crimes of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, simple criminal damage to property, and resisting an officer. 

 At the time of arrest, Williams was found to have a screwdriver in his possession.  It is believed that Williams forced entry into the residence by prying and breaking a window on the first floor of the residence.  Williams was released from the Department of Corrections on August 11, 2012 and remained on parole until May 1, 2013 for the crime of simple burglary and June 1, 2013 for attempted distribution of marijuana.   Williams is considered a habitual felony offender and has prior felony convictions for the crimes of simple burglary, attempted distribution of marijuana, aggravated flight from an officer, theft, and illegal possession of stolen things. 

 At the time of this press release, Williams remains in custody, no bond has been set.  In addition, Williams has been charged by Jefferson Parish Eastbank Probation and Parole for parole violations.
