Two arrests made in Highway Park Subdivision residential burglaries

 Kenner - On Wednesday, July 26, 2017, at 12:19 p.m., the Kenner Police Department responded to suspicious person complaint near the intersection of Bruin Drive & Kansas Avenue (located within the Highway Park subdivision), in reference to two males looking into vehicles.  As Kenner Police responded to this complaint, they received a second and third call in reference to the males.   The second caller reported that one male was walking between residences in the 3100 block of Iowa Avenue, and the third caller reported one of the males was in front of their residence in the 3100 block of Kansas Avenue.

 As Kenner Police arrived they were able to detain a 16-year-old juvenile in the 3100 of Kansas Avenue.  Officers responded to the Iowa Street location and became involved in a foot chase with another 16-year-old juvenile who was captured in the 3200 block of Roosevelt Boulevard.  

 As a result of the investigation, the Kenner Police Department were able to determine that the two juveniles were responsible for three residential burglaries not yet reported in the Highway Park Subdivision, in which stolen property was recovered.  The juveniles, were charged with the crimes of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling (3-counts), illegal possession of stolen things, simple criminal damage to property, and the status offense of child in need of supervision. 

 It should be noted the one of the juveniles was recently arrested for committing multiple vehicle burglaries in the Driftwood Subdivision, on May 31, 2017, in which he was allowed to plea to lesser crimes and receive probation.  At the time of this press release, the two juveniles remain in custody, pending a continued custody hearing in Juvenile Court. 

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges residents to report suspicious activity by calling the   Kenner Police Depart at (504) 712-2222 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
