WATSON, LA (WAFB) -

Members of the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office Uniform Patrol Division were alerted to a possible burglary in progress just after midnight on January 17, 2014 in the 8000 block of Arnold Road in the Watson area.

Once on scene, Deputies saw a vehicle backed up to a residence and movement around the home.

When LPSO Deputies were spotted, Waymon Womack, 47, of Greenwell Springs took off running. He was later arrested at his house. A second suspect, Chad Herod, 40, of Walker was arrested on scene.

A third suspect – Timothy Herod – later appeared on scene claiming to be a ‘Good Samaritan' and wanting to assist. Deputies found out that Timothy Herod was not acting as a ‘Good Samaritan,' but instead was attempting to assist Womack and Herod in getting the vehicle – which was stuck in the mud – free.

Waymon Womack and Chad Herod were booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center.

Herod has been charged with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and operating a vehicle with a suspended license, along with other traffic violations. He is being held on a $30,000 bond.

Womack has been charged with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and is being held on a $25,000 bond.

Timothy Herod, 37, of Denham Springs was issued a misdemeanor summons for criminal mischief.

Sheriff Jason Ard says, "I'm proud of all members of my team for always being on alert and swiftly acting in the best interest of those they have sworn to protect and serve. I often talk about the ‘growing pains' of a larger parish – this is the type of problem we often see. My Deputies worked together to quickly respond, identify and eliminate a problem."
