ASCENSION PARISH, LA (WAFB) - A man wanted for multiple burglaries and who prompted a major manhunt in Ascension Parish surrendered to authorities Thursday morning after two other suspects were arrested, according to officials.
The Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office reported Eric Troquille, 31, turned himself in to sheriff's detectives and the Louisiana State Police Fugitive Task Force. Deputies did not list his charges.
Chief Deputy Bobby Webre with APSO said deputies searched for Troquille for about five hours in the area of Dutchtown Lane and LA 74 on Tuesday, but did not find him. At the time, investigators said he should be considered armed and dangerous.
Webre added Joshua Livingston, 20, of Geismar, was arrested late Wednesday evening after being identified as a suspect in the case. He is charged with simple burglary (13 counts), theft of a firearm (4 counts) and simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling.
Webre also said Devin Troquille, 18, who is the brother of Eric Troquille, was arrested Tuesday after deputies chased the pair. Devin Troquille is charged with simple burglary (7 counts), theft of a firearm (2 counts) and simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling.
Deputies said the case remains under investigation and more charges may be pending.
