TO:                  ALL MEDIA OUTLETS


BAYOU L’OURSE– Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Jonathan Davenport, 31, of 12016 South Blackjack Road, Woodlawn, TX, on felony warrants related to a home invasion on June 11, 2013.

On that day, detectives responded to a complaint in Bayou L’Ourse.  A resident entered her home and a subject later identified as Davenport was in the home going through her belongings.  Davenport is alleged to have stolen a vehicle from the residence and left the area.  The suspect used the victim’s credit cards to make purchases of gasoline.

It was later determined that the suspect had stolen a truck in Calcasieu Parish.  Both vehicles were recovered.

Detectives obtained DNA samples and the State Police Crime Lab obtained a match and that ultimately identified Davenport as the suspect.

Davenport fled the area, believed to have returned to Texas.  Detectives filed arrest warrants back in 2013 charging Davenport with the crimes.

Davenport was arrested on Thursday when he appeared at the Sheriff’s Office to pay a fine and was then transported to the Assumption Parish Detention Center.  He was booked on charges of:

            *Simple Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling

            *Auto Theft

            *Illegal Possession of Stolen Property (Stolen Automobile)

            *Illegal Possession of Stolen Property (Misdemeanor Theft)

Davenport was incarcerated in lieu of $20,000.
