Through investigation, detectives learned that Woodside and the girl had planned to rob a male Thibodaux resident who is in his 20s.

Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies, with assistance from the Houma Police Department, located and arrested Woodside. He was later transported to the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex where he was booked on the aforementioned charges. His bail is also set at $1.05 million.
