Bonds set for suspects in Panola Street robbery

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Bonds have been set for three suspects taken into custody that police believe tied up and robbed two Tulane students.

Aaron Johnson, 17, and Kevin Jones, 18, were arrested late Thursday night and booked with armed robbery, aggravated burglary and false imprisonment with a weapon. The third suspect, James Johnson, 21, was taken into custody Wednesday night in connection with a separate crime. Police said he subsequently confessed to the home invasion.

Aaron Johnson and Kevin Jones remain in jail on $500,000 bond each, while James Johnson remains in jail on a $1 million bond.

The incident happened April 4 at about 5 p.m. in the 7800 block of Panola Street.

Three women were inside the home when three males entered through an open door. One of the suspects had his hand wrapped in a shirt and implied that he had a weapon. Two of the victims were tied up with phone and computer wires while a third victim was upstairs asleep.

The suspects stole the victims' cell phones, credit cards and cash, and then fled on foot.

Thursday night's arrests are the result of continued investigation by Second District detectives. Police said the investigation remains active and ongoing.

The Jets came into the contest with a 5-8 record, and played without their starting quarterback. A weakened New York squad no doubt helped out with the final outcome.  Brees went 25-of-35 passing for 2...
