Two arrested for Mandeville carjacking

From the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office

Two New Orleans-area men were arrested Wednesday (today) after they carjacked the vehicle they had just sold to a Mandeville-area man.

Shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday a bystander called the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office to reported they observed what appeared to be a carjacking in the area of Bay Drive and Penrose Drive near Mandeville.

Two New Orleans-area men Garien Tatum (DOB 11/11/1998) and Deontae White (DOB 7/29/1996), had gone to a Mandeville-area residence supposedly to sell a man a 2003 Ford Mustang.

After signing the title over, they were riding with the man in the Mustang to complete the necessary paperwork to finish the sale, when Tatum and White produced firearms and robbed the man of the money he had brought with him to purchase the vehicle. Tatum and White then took the car and fled back to the Southshore.

Causeway Police located the Mustang headed southbound on the bridge and alerted the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office. Tatum and White were apprehended when they reached the Southshore and were booked into the Jefferson Parish Jail as fugitives.

Once transported to the St. Tammany Parish Jail, they will be booked on warrants for one count each of L.R.S. 14:64.2 Carjacking, L.R.S. 14:64 Armed Robbery and L.R.S. 14:64.3 Armed Robbery with a Firearm.
