Shelton stated that Larry Broussard, who also lives at the residences had allegedly seen a man named Danny Holland place several items in his truck. Holland had allegedly admitted to Broussard that he had taken the items.
While at the residence, Shelton received a phone call. The caller informed Shelton that Holland was at Cherry's Trailer Park.
Deputy Gentry reviewed all the information and then left the home to go to speak with Holland.
When he arrived at the home, he spoke with Lafayette Police Lt. Matt Looper, Sgt. Ray Amalfitano, and Officer Kevin Woodard. They were in the process of interviewing Holland. They stated that Holland told them that the door was already open and he went in and took the gun that allegedly belonged to him.
When Deputy Gentry interviewed him, the story changed. Holland reportedly stated that the door was closed and that he knocked on the door and it opened.
At that time, Deputy Gentry received permission from Holland to search his vehicle where the gun was found.
Holland was arrested at a later time for criminal summons for vandalism for the damage done to the door.
The gun was left with the owner, Holland. The tackle box is still missing. Holland is to appear in court September 29.
