Man arrested after allowing runaway to stay in home


Baton Rouge police arrested a man Monday afternoon after they say he allowed a runaway juvenile stay in his home.

According to police, just before 4 p.m. they arrested 26-year-old Artis Gilmore after he admitted to knowingly allowing the under aged female runaway stay in his home.

Police say both Gilmore and the young female admitted that she had been hiding out at the home since May 15 and had sex multiple times during her stay.

The mother and stepfather of the juvenile told police that Gilmore had already been warned on several occasions about her age and warned him to leave her alone.

Gilmore was arrested and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and carnal knowledge of a juvenile.
