CPSO deputy thwarts attempted home invasion

The following is a news release from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.

Lake Charles, LA – Around 4:45 a.m., Monday, February 1, while patrolling the neighborhood, a Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputy observed a suspicious car parked on Van Buren St. in Lake Charles, occupied with two males.  Two other males were standing underneath a carport of a house between two vehicles wearing masks.  It appears the men may have been attempting a home invasion robbery at the home.  All four men were ordered by the deputy to stand against the car.

While the deputy was waiting on backup, one of the men fled on foot leading the deputy in a foot pursuit.  The man was apprehended within a few minutes and another man took off running and got away.  When the backup deputies arrived, they took the men into custody.  Deputies searched the area and discovered 2 rifles lying in the grass in a neighbor's backyard where they were thrown by the suspects.

Johnathon W. Thierry, 36, and Leonard C. Lambert, 18, both of Lake Charles, were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with attempted armed robbery with a firearm; and criminal trespassing.  Thierry was also charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.  A 16 year old juvenile was also arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Parish Juvenile Detention Center.

Judge Wilford Carter set Thierry's bond at $30,000 and Lambert's at $20,500.

CPSO CPL. Greg Nall and Cpl. Dennis Courtney were the arresting deputies.  Detective Mark Clark is the lead investigator on this case.  The investigation is ongoing with additional arrests and charges pending.
