Two more charged in Cut Off armed robbery

Kalob Burris, 33, of Cut Off and Alex Chatagnier, 29, of Galliano have been charged in a July armed robbery which took place in Cut Off. Phillip Jelks, 31, of Golden Meadow and Eldon Ordoyne, 36, of Breaux Bridge had already been arrested for their involvements.

The incident took place during the early morning hours of July 27, 2015. Through investigation, detectives learned three male suspects, later identified as Jelks, Ordoyne and Burris, held two men at gunpoint in an armed robbery just outside a residence on East 72nd Street in Cut Off. The victims were then forced inside the residence where the suspects encountered two additional victims.

The subjects searched the residence for valuables and eventually fled the scene with clothing, a cell phone, a wallet and a set of keys. Detectives later learned a fourth suspect, identified as Chatagnier, traveled to and from the residence with the three other suspects.

Detectives initially obtained arrest warrants for Jelks and Ordoyne. Jelks was arrested July 31 and is charged with two counts of Armed Robbery and Aggravated Burglary in the incident. He also faces several other charges stemming from other incidents, and he remains in jail in lieu of $175,000 bond. Ordoyne was arrested on August 25 and is charged with two counts of armed robbery, attempted armed robbery, and aggravated burglary. He remains in jail in lieu of $270,000 bond.

Through further investigation, detectives obtained arrest warrants this week for Chatagnier and Burris who were already at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center due to previous arrests. Both are charged with two counts each of armed robbery. Chatagnier was arrested by narcotics agents on September 27 on active warrants for distribution of methamphetamine and contempt of court. His bond has increased to $325,100. Burris was arrested on numerous charges stemming from an unrelated incident on Sunday, October 18. His bond amount has increased to $393,300.
