Two arrested and charged with weapons violations

 Kenner - On Monday, December 14, 2015, the Kenner Police Department arrested Leo Wallace, 19 of 3304 Delaware Avenue, Kenner, and Marlon Jackson 18, of 2500 Idaho Avenue, Kenner.  Both were charged with illegal carrying of weapons and possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number. 

 

 On Monday, the Kenner Police Department received information that both Wallace and Jackson were armed; and in the Susan Park Subdivision.  Both were supposedly involved in an earlier disturbance, which was not reported to police.  The disturbance involved an unknown individual that they intended to retaliate against and shoot. 

 

 The Kenner Police Department familiar with both Wallace and Jackson, due to previous arrests, located both, walking in the 200 block of 27th Street, in Kenner (Susan Park Subdivision).   Upon officers attempting to conduct an investigatory stop, both Wallace and Jackson attempted to flee by running. 

 

 Officers pursued and were able to capture Wallace in the 2600 block of Salem Street, and Jackson in the 2600 block of Fayette Street.  Both were armed, one with a 9 millimeter and the second a 40 caliber handgun.  Both guns serial numbers were obliterated. 

 

 At the time of this press release, both Wallace and Jackson remain in custody.  No bond has been set.  Neither Wallace nor Jackson cooperated with the investigation. 

 

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser encourages anyone who may have information on Leo Wallace, or Marlon Jackson, to contact the Kenner Police Department Criminal Investigations Division at (504) 712-2252.
