One arrested, one sought in Christmas Eve armed robbery

Sheriff Craig Webre and Golden Meadow Police Chief Reggie Pitre announced one man has been arrested and another is being sought for an armed robbery that took place in Cut Off on Christmas Eve.

Ryan Biliot, 26, of Golden Meadow is charged with armed robbery, and a warrant has been issued for the arrest of the second suspect, Storm Dantin, 27, of Cut Off.

Just after 1:00 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 24, deputies responded to assist Golden Meadow Police after learning three men had just been robbed by two male subjects just outside a bar in the town. One of the suspects was armed with a knife, while the other was armed with a firearm.

The suspects stole wallets, money, cell phones and other items from the victims. Through investigation, detectives identified the two suspects as Storm Dantin and Ryan Billiot and obtained arrest warrants for one count each of armed robbery.

Billiot was located and arrested later that morning. He was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux on the aforementioned warrant, as well as three other outstanding warrants for contempt of court. He remains in jail in lieu of $101,000 bond.

The second suspect, Storm Dantin, was still at large as of press time Tuesday.
