St. Mary Parish Corrections Officer Arrested
A twenty-year-old corrections officer, who worked at the St. Mary Parish Correctional Center, has been arrested for two counts of Principal to Attempted 2nd Degree Murder and Obstruction of Justice.
St. Mary Parish Sheriff's officials say 20-year-old Treyvon Mikel Burrell of 415 Park Street in Patterson was arrested after an investigation was started by the Thibodaux Police Department.
There was an incident that was being investigated there, and detectives are still getting information about this case.
Burrell has been a corrections officer since March of this year, but he was fired as soon as he was arrested.
St. Mary Parish Sheriff Blaise Smith says,
"No one is above the law, especially those entrusted to enforce it. My department will be held to the highest standards and anyone breaking the law will be dealt with accordingly."
More information will be released from the Thibodaux Police Department at a later date.
