Ledet’s bail is set at $50,000. Walker was additionally charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana, and his bail is set at $200,000.
The second incident occurred just before noon at Cypress Court Trailer Park in Gray. A man and woman were reportedly held at gunpoint by two men, later identified as Michael Jules and Javonte Miller. They stole a vehicle and another item. Deputies apprehended the suspects on a traffic stop and both admitted to stealing the vehicle. They were placed under arrest and charges are pending.
