Kenner man on parole for multiple vehicle burglaries arrested on residential burglaries & theft charges

 Kenner - A Kenner man on parole for committing car burglaries has been arrested in reference to two residential burglaries and thefts.  On Friday, January 24, 2014, Roderick Cobb, 20, who provided the home address of 3810 California Avenue, Kenner, was arrested by members of the Kenner Police Department and charged with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling 2-counts, felony theft, and misdemeanor theft.  

 Cobb was linked to two residential burglaries that occurred in the 3800 block of California Avenue and the 4000 block of Alabama Avenue, in Kenner on December 25, 2013, and January 8, 2014.  In each of the residential burglaries Cobb entered the residence from the rear of the property by finding an unlocked rear door or by breaking a window.  Cobb removed televisions from the residences which were later found pawned at a local pawn shop.  In addition to these burglaries, Cobb was also arrested for the theft of a television from an acquaintance’s home that also occurred in the 3800 block of California Avenue, and for the money he received from the pawn shop where he pawned the stolen televisions. 

 Cobb, who has two felony convictions for simple burglary, was on parole at the time of his arrest until 10/12/2014.  Cobb had been arrested and convicted for several car burglaries that occurred in January 2011, in the Driftwood and Greenlawn subdivisions, in Kenner.  Cobb at that time (2011) admitted that he was seeking a gun, “cause of the lifestyle I’m living.  I like to smoke weed (marijuana).”  Cobb was interviewed by Detective Trey Hille concerning the residential burglaries and confessed that he committed the burglaries because he needed money. 

 In addition, to the above burglary and theft charges, Cobb also has been charged with parole violations.  At the time of this press release, Cobb remains in custody, no bond has been set. 

 Chief Steve Caraway encourages anyone with information concerning these incidents, or has any information concerning Roderick Cobb, to call the Kenner Police Department (Detective Trey Hille) at (504) 712-2213 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111.    Kenner Police website:
