NATALBANY — A burglary investigation ended with the arrests of four suspects following a foot-chase and an hour-long standoff Saturday, the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office said Monday.
While searching for a stolen vehicle Saturday, sheriff’s detectives saw two men running toward a truck parked at the end of Alley Lane, sheriff’s spokeswoman Dawn Panepinto said in a news release.
Detectives found three firearms, one of which had been reported stolen, in the area from which the men ran, Panepinto said.
The officers arrested Phillip Joseph Domiano, 23, of Hammond, on a count of possessing a stolen firearm and Cameron Dale Smith, 23, of Tickfaw, on one count of possessing a stolen firearm and two outstanding warrants for failure to appear.
Detectives learned the stolen handgun had been bought from Lamario Patterson, 25, of Albany, one of two suspects identified in an ongoing burglary investigation, Panepinto said.
Patterson and Treshaun Adams, 18, of Natalbany, had been seen on surveillance video allegedly committing several burglaries throughout the past several months, Panepinto said.
While looking for Patterson on Saturday, detectives found Adams walking alongside the road Panepinto said.
Detectives tried to talk to Adams, but he ran, ignoring shouts for him to stop, Panepinto said.
A police dog named Titan was unleashed to help catch Adams, who broke into a home in an effort to flee, Panepinto said. Titan caught Adams as he tried to exit the back side of the house, Panepinto said.
Adams was booked with resisting arrest by flight, attempted harming of a police dog, burglary and two counts of failure to appear, Panepinto said.
Detectives later learned Patterson was at another Natalbany residence on Barnes Quarter and arrested him following an hour-long standoff in which he barricaded himself into a room, Panepinto said.
Patterson was booked with resisting an officer by force, auto theft, burglary, possession of stolen property, aggravated assault with a firearm, simple battery, simple criminal damage to property, felony theft and a parole violation, according to the release.
