Three arrested, one sought in connection to Galliano armed robbery

Three people have been arrested and another man is wanted in connection to an armed robbery that took place in Galliano in May.

Donald Dardar, 35, and his cousin, Santos Dardar, 31, both of Montegut, have been charged with armed robbery, and Donald's wife, Mandy Dardar, 29, is charged as an accessory.

As of press time Friday, detectives were searching for Brent LeBouef, 23, of Houma who is also wanted in connection to the incident.

Just after 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 13, deputies and detectives responded to an armed robbery reported at a Galliano residence. Through investigation, detectives learned a man and woman were sleeping inside their home when two masked subjects made forced entry by breaking a rear window at the residence. The two subjects then entered the couple's bedroom and held the man at gunpoint while the other stood over the woman with a baseball bat.

The two masked subjects then tied up the couple and demanded money. Then, they rummaged through the home and stole a safe, an undetermined amount of cash, and several other items of value.

Upon exiting the home, they also stole a sport-utility vehicle from the residence. After the masked subjects left, the man and woman freed themselves and called for help. Golden Meadow Police later discovered the stolen vehicle abandoned on Louviere Lane.

Through investigation, and with the assistance of the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office, detectives obtained information that led them to develop the Dardars and LeBouef as suspects in the crime. Detectives identified LeBoeuf and Santos Dardar as the two suspects who entered the home, and learned Donald and Mandy Dardar were also at the scene in a vehicle used to flee the scene. Donald was identified as the driver of that vehicle.

Due to their respective involvements, detectives obtained arrest warrants for LeBoeuf, Santos Dardar, and Donald Dardar on the charge of armed robbery, and they obtained a warrant for Mandy Dardar for accessory after the fact to armed robbery.

Detectives located and arrested Mandy Dardar on Monday, June 22. She was transported to the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux where she was booked. She is being held in lieu of $100,000 bond as set by Judge Christopher J. Boudreaux.

Donald and Santos Dardar are both currently incarcerated at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex.
Donald Dardar was incarcerated after having been arrested by the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office on June 7 for attempted second-degree murder in an unrelated incident.

Santos Dardar was arrested per the warrant at his Montegut residence on Thursday, June 18. Upon his arrest, Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's deputies also discovered him to be in possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the presence of a juvenile, and he was charged accordingly.

Their arrest warrants in Lafourche Parish for armed robbery carry bonds of $200,000 each.

Brent LeBouef is also wanted for armed robbery with a bond amount of $200,000 as specified by the warrant. His last known address was on American Boulevard in Houma, but detectives believe he may be hiding out in the New Orleans area. Detectives caution that LeBouef should be considered armed and dangerous.
