Pair of fugitives arrested for crimes in EBR, WBR parishes
BATON ROUGE - The Attorney General's Office says an investigation conducted by their Fugitive Apprehension Unit led to the arrest of a couple wanted for crimes in both East and West Baton Rouge parishes.
29-year-old Alvin Webb was wanted by West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's deputies in connection with the July burglary of St. Paul's Baptist Church in Port Allen after they received a tip. Deputies released video footage of the buglary shortly after the crime happened.
The Fugitive Apprehension Unit and WBRSO deputies located and arrested Webb at his Baton Rouge residence on Thursday. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison as fugitive from the WBRSO for simple burglary of a religious building.
During the investigation, agents came into contact with another person who lived at the home where Webb was eventually located. Investigators determined that 25-year-old Melissa Taylor was also wanted by the EBRSO in connection with an armed robbery and home invasion on Kleinpeter Road in September of this year. Taylor was also booked into the EBR Parish prison on charges of armed robbery, home invasion and aggravated battery charges.
