A 31-yr-old has been arrested after he allegedly went on a crime spree in southeast Louisiana, including Baton Rouge.
Police say the suspect had a stolen black Audi SUV that he allegedly painted white to elude officers.
Officials added that he wore the same clothes in several armed robberies and then posted pictures of himself in those clothes with the black and white Audi SUV to his social media accounts, which helped police piece together the case. (pictures below)
Kevin Borden is accused of stealing a Louis Vuitton purse from Peggy Wooley in the Citiplace Shopping Center in Baton Rouge on June 29th in broad daylight. It was the subject of a victim’s voice story on Unfiltered with Kiran.
Wooley said the suspect got into her car and snatched her purse before hopping in a white Audi SUV and driving off leaving Wooley sitting in her car with only her phone in her hand.
Wooley said she waited nearly two hours for Baton Rouge Police to arrive.
Nearly a month later, Wooley said she got a call from a Slidell Police detective that they believe the man connected to her incident in Baton Rouge had been arrested in Orleans Parish.
Slidell PD was looking for him in connection to three armed robberies between June-July 2022. They were finally able to get surveillance video where police said Borden wore the exact same clothes in all the robberies.
With the help of the public, the police were told Borden lives in New Orleans East. When officers attempted to approach Borden at his home, he allegedly jumped in the white Audi SUV, hit two police cars and then fled. He was eventually caught & arrested.
Inside his Audi SUV, which police found out was stolen, officers found the same clothes & gun he allegedly used in all three armed robberies in Slidell.
After his release from Orleans Parish, Borden will head to St. Tammany Parish to face charges for three counts of armed robbery with a firearm and three counts of felon in possession of a firearm.
Perhaps after his release from St. Tammany, he could face charges in East Baton Rouge Parish in connection to Wooley’s case.
Slidell Police said Borden wore the same clothes in all three armed robberies: a gray DKNY hoodie, blue jeans with unique rips and tears, and had a black and silver handgun. Officers added he used the same gun as well.
They found through a search of his social media accounts, Borden had posted pictures of himself wearing the exact same clothes as well as pictures of the black & white Audi SUV.
Police learned the original black Audi SUV was stolen and that Borden allegedly painted it white to throw off officers.
Borden is looking at several different charges in several different parishes.
