Kenner man arrested for home invasion


Kenner - A Kenner man has been arrested after he pointed a stolen shotgun at an 11 year old then committed a home invasion.  On Saturday, December 10, 2011, Earl Norman, II, 22, of 2625 Bessemer Street, Kenner, was arrested by members of the Kenner Police Department after he committed a home invasion in the 2600 block of Augusta Street, in Kenner. 

At approximately 1018 p.m., Saturday, December 10, 2011, Kenner Police received a complaint in reference to a disturbance in the 2600 block of Augusta Street, in which a black male was observed carrying a shotgun.  Officers responding to the complaint learned that Norman had accused an 11 year old of removing property from a vehicle.  Norman pointed a shotgun at the 11 year old who ran inside his house for help.  Norman followed and kicked the front door of the juvenile’s residence, forcing entry, and pointed both a shotgun and handgun at the occupants and demanded property that was allegedly removed from his vehicle. 

Norman fled to a nearby home, where he was arrested.  Norman was found to have possessed a stolen Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun and a stolen .40 caliber handgun.  The shotgun was found to have been reported stolen during a July 11, 2011, vehicle burglary that occurred at 2820 Williams Boulevard, in Kenner.     The handgun was confirmed stolen by the New Orleans Police Department. 

Norman was charged with the crimes of aggravated assault, home invasion, simple criminal damage to property, illegal possession of stolen firearms, and illegal possession of a firearm by a person convicted of certain felonies.  Norman has a prior felony conviction for simple burglary stemming from a 2008 arrest, which prevents him from possessing a firearm.  At the time of this press release, Norman remains in custody; his bond was set at $96,500.00.

Chief Steve Caraway urges anyone with information concerning this incident, to call the Kenner Police Department at (504) 712-2222, or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111. 

Kenner Police Officer Brian Saucier is in charge of the investigation.
