Couple arrested in Washington Parish (again)
Press Release from the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office:
Nicholes Paul Gonsoulin, 31, and Tori Breanne Corkern Gonsoulin, 29, were arrested on December 10 for burglary of a Highway 16 business in southern Washington Parish. The Lee Road residents have been arrested several times, the latest being in April 2019 for drug offenses. On the latest charge of burglary of a business, each was able to post a $2,500 bond for release--Nicholes after being in jail two days and Tori after a four day stay in jail.
Washington Parish patrol deputy Mike Thomas, along with officers with the Sheriff’s drug task force, investigated the burglary and were able to identify the Gonsoulins based on information gained from a concerned neighbor of the business. Drug task force detectives encountered the pair on Highway 60 and located some of the stolen property in their vehicle. The Gonsoulins admitted to the burglary and were arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail.
The latest stay in the Washington Parish Jail was number 10 for Nicholes Paul Gonsoulin who was first arrested in 2007. Arrests since that time were for various offenses including battery, disturbing the peace, criminal damage to property, domestic violence and drug offenses. Tori Breanne Corkern Gonsoulin was in the jail for her fourth time since 2016. Previous arrests were for drug offenses and cruelty to a juvenile.
“I suppose this is a prime example of a couple that does things together, wrong things,” stated Sheriff Randy Seal. “If they continue on this track in life, they can expect only pour outcomes. That is sad.”
