METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) -

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office on Thursday announced several arrests in connection with a rash of burglaries in Old Metairie.

  • Christina Hebert, 25, was booked with two counts of possession of stolen property and narcotics violations.
  • Blake Bonnecarre, 22, was booked with one count of resisting arrest by force, one count of battery on a police officer, one count of possession of a firearm while in possession of a controlled dangerous substance, one count of possession of drug paraphernalia and one count of marijuana possession.
  • David Barthel, 19, was booked with one count of possession of stolen property. 
  • Mario Dominach,19, was booked with one count of possession of stolen property
  • Warrants have been issued for Jason Borel, 18, for four counts of simple burglary, one count of resisting arrest by force and one count of battery on a police officer.

Sheriff Newell Normand said he believes they are the same people chased down by Saints coach Joe Vitt, who was injured while trying to pursue robbers in his neighborhood.

Investigators said they recovered $14,000 worth of paintings, iPads, checks and drugs during a search of Borel's apartment.

Normand said the investigation began when the JPSO Narcotic Bureau developed information that Borel and several others in his Wabash Street apartment were selling heroin and were possibly involved in burglaries in the Greater New Orleans area.

Agents put the Wabash Street address under surveillance. As a search warrant for the apartment was being prepared, agents saw Borel and Bonnecarre walking out of the apartment together and then splitting up, with Bonnecarre getting into a car and driving away in a Nissan Maxima.

Agents conducted a stop on the Maxima, and during a pat down of Bonnecarre found a gun in his waistband. He was placed under arrest.

When Borel was stopped for questioning, investigators said he became combative and punched one of the agents several times. He was also found to be carrying a handgun, and during the struggle with investigators managed to flee on foot back into the apartment complex. Bonnecarre also ran, but was eventually found with the assistance of a K-9 unit.
