Three suspects rob victim of money and guns during drug deal

 KENNER Ė  On March 9, at 1AM, the victim was contacted, via Snapchat, by Steven Henning, one of three suspects, whom the victim recently met during Mardi Gras.  The victim agreed to meet Henning at the La Quinta Inn hotel in Kenner, located at 2610 Williams Boulevard to purchase marijuana. 

 The Henning provided a room number to the victim and when the victim entered the room, he was confronted by Henning and two additional suspects who were all armed with handguns. The victim was pistol whipped and knocked unconscious.  He awoke to find the suspects going through his pockets.  His keys and money were taken and he was held at gunpoint while one of the suspects departed with the victimís keys to locate his vehicle.  A short time later he was instructed to walk with the two remaining suspects to the parking lot, then ordered into his vehicle.  The three suspects and victim drove around while he was held at gunpoint.  Two guns owned by the victim were found in the victimís vehicle by the suspects.  The suspects drove the victim to an apartment complex in St. Rose, which was later identified to be in the 200 block of East Club Drive.  The three suspects exited the victimís vehicle, with the victimís two guns and fled on foot.

 Through video surveillance, phone records and witness identifications the three suspects were identified to be Steven Henning, 19, St. Rose, Deiontre Tumblin, 20, St. Rose and Tariq Rogers, 20, St. Rose.

 Deiontre Tumblin and Tariq Rogers were later learned to live in the same nearby apartments where the victim was left.

 Steven Henning and Deiontre Tumblin have both been apprehended and booked with Armed Robbery, Second Degree Kidnapping and Simple Burglary.

 Tariq Rogers is currently WANTED for Armed Robbery, Second Degree Kidnapping and Simple Burglary.

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser urges anyone who has any information about these incidents to call the Kenner Police at (504) 712-2222 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.
