Man accused of stealing truck in Covington using BB gun arrested, Sheriff’s Office says
The man who police say stole a woman’s truck from a parking lot in Covington while armed with a BB gun has been arrested, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday. Detectives from the Tangipahoa Parish and St.
Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Offices had been looking for 33-year-old Andrew Barbazon since Monday, after they searched his home and found evidence that linked him to the car theft. He was arrested in Natalbany on Wednesday afternoon and booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail as a fugitive, authorities said. He faces a first-degree robbery charge in St.
Tammany Parish. Deputies were called to the Academy Sports and Outdoor store on Pinnacle Parkway in Covington around 9 a.m. Saturday after a woman reported that her truck had been stolen by a man who had a rifle.
Investigators watched video from the store and saw Barbazon allegedly remove an airsoft BB rifle from its packaging, discard the packaging and exit the store. Lance Vitter, a spokesman for the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office, said the gun had most likely been stolen from the store.
As the woman loaded packages into the back of her truck, the Sheriff’s Office said Barbazon climbed in the trick and drove away.
The truck was recovered later Saturday morning in Tangipahoa Parish.
