Kenner men arrested on burglary spree involving unlocked vehicles

 KENNER-On Friday, February 19, 2016, the Kenner Police Department arrested Jonathan Dearmas, 20, and Jesus Dearmas, of 429 John Hopkins Drive in Kenner.  Each was charged with the crimes of simple burglary of a vehicle (9-counts), attempt simple burglary of a vehicle (2-counts), and possession of stolen things.  Both targeted unlocked vehicles found burglarized and was reported to Kenner Police on January 30th, February 17th, and February 19th.  The vehicle burglaries occurred within the Southlake Village and Driftwood, subdivisions in Kenner.   

 On Friday, 19, 2016, the Kenner Police Department received a telephone call from a concerned citizen who reported suspicious activity in the Southlake Village Subdivision in Kenner.  The citizen reported that a white Nissan Versa was driving through the subdivision with its lights off.  Kenner Police Officers responding to the suspicious vehicle complaint stopped the Nissan Versa in the 4200 block of Sal Lentini Parkway, in Kenner, as it exited the Southlake Village Subdivision.  Found inside the vehicle was wallets, money, credit cards, and other property taken from unlocked vehicles.  Kenner Police were able to link both to series of burglaries that occurred on January 30th and February 17th, utilizing private video surveillance cameras from residents in the area. 

 Both Jonathan and Jesus Dearmas refused to cooperate with the investigation.  Both appear to have ties to Florida where they have significant arrest histories.  It is believed that both are responsible for other vehicle burglaries that are presently under investigation.   At the time of this press release, both remain in custody, no bond has been set.   

 Kenner Police Chief Michael J. Glaser encourages who may have information concerning these vehicle burglaries, or Jonathan and Jesus Dearmas to call Detective Mike Jackson at (504) 712-2283.
