LULING – The St. Charles Sheriff’s Office rounded up three suspects on Sunday and Monday on charges of battery, all stemming from domestic squabbles, Sheriff Greg Champagne reported.

Travis Thomas, 24, Dale Landry, 44, and Joshua Robicheaux, 30, all from the Luling area, were all charged with various crimes in addition to battery after authorities were alerted by the victims.

Thomas was arrested following an altercation with his wife where he threw her against the furniture in their Paul Fredrick Street home before taking the victim’s car keys in an effort to prevent her from leaving the residence. According to Capt. Pat Yoes, a spokesman for the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office, Thomas then allegedly loaded his gun and threatened to shoot his wife if she left the home.

He was charged with aggravated assault, simple battery and was also wanted on an attachment from the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office. Thomas is being held on a $22,500 bond set by 29th Judicial District Court Judge Robert A. Chaisson.

Landry, 2229 Mimosa Ave., was charged with violation of a protective order, simple battery, harassing phone calls, and criminal mischief after he allegedly started a fight with his ex-wife outside of a store. The two were arguing over the victim’s current boyfriend, authorities said.

Landry was released after posting a $1,030 cash bond set by Judge Chaisson.

In an incident involving two Luling residents, officers were called to the home when Robicheaux, 316 Milling Ave., got into an argument with his live-in girlfriend. During the heated exchange, Robicheaux allegedly fired one shot into his bedroom floor before attempting to snatch the victim’s daughter as she tried to leave with her. The victim also reported that Robicheaux broke her cell phone when she attempted to call the Sheriff’s Office.

Robicheaux was released on a $30,000 property bond set by Judge Chaisson.
