Fourth suspect faces charges in Parish Field Office incident

Fourth suspect faces charges in Parish Field Office incident

The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office announced the arrest of Justin Howard, 18, of Raceland on Tuesday, August 25. Through further investigation into the incident, detectives discovered Calvin Williams, Jahi Raymond and Travonta Caine all met with Howard prior to the incident. Investigators further learned Howard had identified dirt bikes (off-road motorcycles) to be stolen at another location, but told the others they needed trucks to transport the bikes. Howard then allegedly drove the others to the Raceland Field Office to steal trucks at that location.

Detectives obtained warrants for Howard's arrest for two counts of theft of a motor vehicle and one count of simple burglary. Detectives then made contact with Howard on Tuesday, August 25. During questioning, Howard admitted to his role in the crimes. He was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center to be booked accordingly. His bond was set at $35,000.

Travonta Caine was wanted in connection to the incident and recently turned himself in.
