Two arrested for home invasion, robbery in Thibodaux

Lafourche Parish deputies arrest two people after a home invasion and robbery at a home in Thibodaux. It's an incident where investigators say the suspects beat a woman and used a stun gun on her.

36-year-old Cody Matherne of Cut Off and 34-year-old Katie Hendrix of Grand Isle were arrested after admitting to their involvement in the crime.

Investigators say they got to the residence Friday, January 30, around 5:15 p.m.

Deputies say Katie Hendrix and Cody Matherne, entered the residence without permission beat a woman inside the residence and used a stun gun on her as well. Investigators say the two eventually fled the residence with several items, including a laptop, cell phones, and cash.

Detectives later located Hendrix and Matherne at a store in Galliano and they were transported to the South Lafourche Sub-station for questioning. Both admitted to their involvement in the crime, and detectives recovered some of the items taken from the incident.

Hendrix and Matherne were both charged with Armed Robbery and Home Invasion and are being held at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in lieu of $100,000 bond as set by Judge Christopher J. Boudreaux.


Detectives are now looking for Katie's husband, Jamie Hendrix, for questioning in this case. Anyone with information on Jamie Hendrix's whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting "GIVEATIP" plus your message to 274637.  Tips can also be submitted using the TipSubmit Mobile application or online at www.crimestoppersbr.org.
