GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -

Ascension Parish Sheriffs arrested, and charged a Gonzales man with second degree kidnapping, felony theft, criminal damage to property, and entry in places after being forbidden.

According to reports, officers responded to a residence on Roddy Road where homeowners claim Austin Roddy, 26, was refusing to leave the property. 

The report goes on to say Roddy’s request for money from the homeowners was denied causing Roddy to become irate and damage several items in the residence.  Roddy allegedly proceeded to take an undisclosed amount of cash from the home, before forcing the homeowners to drive him to an undisclosed location.

Deputies procured a warrant for Roddy’s arrest and found him in a Gonzales home the next morning.

Roddy was booked into Ascension Parish Jail on Thursday.
