After Gulfport police secured arrest warrants for the two suspects, police were told they may be on Caroline St. in Gonzales.

That’s when Gonzales officers went by the home with the help of Ascension Parish Sheriff’s deputies.

Gonzales PD says they saw the vehicle described by Gulfport Police parked in the driveway of the home on Caroline St. Unfiltered with Kiran is told it was a black truck (picture below). That’s when Gonzales officers say they saw the two get into the truck and then leave the home.

Gonzales PD & Ascension deputies attempted a traffic stop. Instead, they refused to stop and that led to a pursuit.
