Tyron Robertson

 

On Thursday, April 12th, at approximately 3:00 p.m., Tyron Robertson went into a business in the 100 Block of Glenwild Drive and stole multiple items. As Tyron Robertson, along with another adult male and a toddler, was exiting the store the merchandise alarm sensors were activated. Store employees followed Robertson and the others to their vehicle and retrieved the license plate for Police.

As the black Hyundai Sonata that Robertson was driving was exiting the parking lot, Thibodaux Police spotted the vehicle. As the Thibodaux Police Officer caught up to Robertson’s vehicle at Forty Arpent Road and Frederick Drive, Robertson slowed the vehicle and then sped off. A vehicle pursuit ensued with Robertson’s vehicle leaving the roadway briefly, traveling in the opposing lane of traffic, and disregarding traffic signs while throwing several items out of the window. The pursuing Officer made mental notes of where the items were thrown to later be retrieved.

Robertson eventually stopped the vehicle at Karla Drive and Denise Drive. As Officers were conducting a felony takedown, Robertson refused to comply with the Officers’ commands and resisted arrest as Officers tried to handcuff him. The passenger complied with the commands of the Officers. The toddler was found to be in the front seat of the vehicle. The toddler was then given to a family member.

Police recovered a 5.11 shooting glove, two Nike headbands, and a glock 9mm magazine. Police also went to the areas that items were thrown during the pursuit and recovered a box of 9 mm ammunition and an AR15 42 round magazine. Inside of the vehicle, Officers also located a Diamond Back .380 firearm. It was not reported stolen.

Tyron Robertson was released from the Lafourche Parish Detention Center on Thursday, April 12th, at approximately 10:02 p.m. after posting his $22,700 bond.
