Two teenage juveniles arrested for armed robbery

 Kenner - Two teenage juveniles were arrested one Tuesday (September 26, 2017), and one Wednesday (September 27, 2017), concerning an armed robbery which was reported to the Kenner Police Department on Sunday, September 24, 2017, in the 1600 block of Mayfield Street, in Kenner (Lincoln Manor Subdivision). 

 On Sunday, September 24, 2017, at 12:15 a.m., a 49-year-old male victim reported that he had previously contacted the alias “Cole Evans” on the “letgo” application in reference to purchasing a gold 128 GB iPhone for $70.00.  The “letgo” app is advertised as a “yard sale app that lets people post and sell things they no longer need.”  The victim was provided an address on Mayfield Street, to meet and purchase the iPhone.  Upon arrival, the victim met with two individuals who robbed him at gun point, taking his cellular telephone, money, and a ring from him. 

 As the result of the investigation, the Kenner Police Department was able to identify two teenagers, both male, one 16-years-old, from Destrehan, and one 15-years-old, from Kenner.   Both were arrested and charged with the crime of armed robbery.   Both juveniles were interviewed and confessed their involvement in the armed robbery.   The Kenner Police Department was able to recover a BB gun which is believed to have been used in the armed robbery, in addition, the victim was able to recover his cellular telephone

 Both juveniles were transported to the Rivarde Detention Center, pending a continued custody hearing.  Kenner Police Detective Nick Engler is in charge of the investigation.
