Ronnie Gregoire Jr

On Wednesday, April 13, 2016, at 3:06 p.m. St. John the Baptist Parish deputies were dispatched to the 1700 block of Ridgefield Drive in LaPlace in reference to the attempted theft of a mail package delivered to the doorstep of a residence. The complainant witnessed a male subject walking in and out of yards along the street, then saw the subject remove the package from the doorstep of the residence. When the complainant confronted the subject, he returned the package to the doorstep then fled. When responding deputies arrived in the area, they saw a subject fleeing on foot who matched the description of the suspect. Deputies detained the subject for further investigation and identified him as Ronnie Gregoire Jr., 23, of Reserve. In addition, deputies were dispatched the same day at 4:56 p.m. to the 1300 block of Ridgefield Drive in reference to recorded video surveillance from a residence, which aided deputies in identifying Gregoire as the subject entering a neighboring residence’s garage. During the course of this investigation, the homeowner told deputies a skateboard was missing from the garage, and unfamiliar items including a plastic shopping bag filled with food were found in the sun room. The skateboard was recovered during the investigation. Deputies arrested Gregoire in the 1400 block of Belle Alliance Drive and booked him with resisting an officer, attempted theft, criminal mischief, simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and contempt of court. He remains in custody in lieu of a $2,650 bond.
