Trio arrested for armed robbery of 69 year-old woman

Laplace, La. - The St. John Sheriff's Office arrested three people for the armed robbery of a 69-year-old woman Sunday.

St. John Sheriff Mike Tregre says it happened around 10:20 a.m. in the 2300 block of Hebert Drive in LaPlace. 

The victim told investigators that she often sells sweets and snacks from her residence. Sunday morning, she answered at knock at her door and allowed two black male subjects in her home.

Police say the two subjects pulled out guns and pointed them at her and her grandson. The suspects stole her cash box and fled in the field behind the residence. No one was injured during the incident.

Deputies canvassed the area and located two black men matching the description of the suspects. As deputies attempted to stop the men, they fled on foot.

One of the men threw an object as he ran. Both men were apprehended, and deputies recovered two handguns and the stolen cash box.

Detectives arrested 19 year-old David Sheppard of Reserve and booked him with armed robbery and armed robbery with a firearm. His bond is $500,000.00.

Detectives also arrested 20 year-old Anthony Sheppard and booked him with armed robbery, armed robbery with a firearm, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. His bond is $525,000.00.

During the investigation, detectives received information that a female from the neighborhood may have had knowledge of the robbery. Based on the investigation, detectives arrested Brittany Schmidt, 20, of Hebert Drive. She was booked with obstruction of justice. Her bond is $10,000.00
