Two arrested from St. Rose

 Kenner - On Sunday, March 12, 2017, the Kenner Police Department arrested Eric Carrillo, 27, of 33 Bonura Drive, St. Rose, and Kimberly Tonquinto, 25, of 78 Bonura Drive, St. Rose.  

 Eric Carrillo was charged with the crimes of flight from an officer, theft, no driverís license, and improper display of a license plate. 

 Kimberly Tonquinto was charged with the crimes of theft, resisting an officer with injury, and illegal possession of cocaine .1 gram. 

 On Sunday, March 12, 2017, at 7:01 p.m., a Kenner Police Officer working an off-duty police detail at the Walmart, located at 8912 Veterans Boulevard, Kenner, attempted to detain Kimberly Tonquinto, in reference to a shoplifting incident.  While attempting to detain Tonquinto she resisted arrest and the officer was struck in the mouth.  Tonquinto then fled the business on foot where she immediately jumped into to an awaiting blue GMC Yukon, that was in the parking lot. 

 Kenner Police units dispatched to the location attempted to stop the Yukon driven by Eric Carrillo in the parking lot.  Carrillo refused to stop, and fled, leading officers on a short chase that went eastbound into the 8800 block of Veterans Boulevard, southbound on David Drive, then westbound on West Napoleon Avenue, in Metairie.  The Yukon was eventually stopped in the 8900 block of West Napoleon Avenue, where both was taken into custody.  

 It should be noted at the time of the stop, it was discovered that Carrillo had utilized a bag to partially cover the license plate to the vehicle he and Tonquinto was attempting to escape in.   Once transported to the Kenner Police Department jail, Tonquinto was found to possess .1 gram of cocaine. 

 The officer struck; received minor injuries. 

 At the time of this press release, both Carrillo and Tonquinto remain in custody, pending a bond hearing.
