two residences on Brittany Drive and disappeared from sight.

the suspect, later identified as Advil Strowder, 47, who provided the
home address of 3612 E. Loyola Drive, in Kenner, jump the neighboring
fence. Strowder immediately
jumped onto his bicycle and lead officers on a short chase.

between two residences located in the 1300 block of Vintage Drive where

residence on Brittany Drive where he was first seen jumping over the
