Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s deputies arrested four more people in connection with the Oct. 12 vandalism at Tidelands Golf and Country Club in Galliano, according to a department spokesman.



Kevin Guidry, 19, 131 Prosperity Lane, Galliano; Devin Michael Guidry, 19, 107 West 204th St., Galliano; Christopher Elliot Bradshaw, also known as “Tennessee,” 20, 6323 Jefferson Rd., Smithville, Tenn.; Robby J. Lerille Jr., 17, 173 B & R Lane, Golden Meadow; and Perry “P.J.” Rousse Jr., 17, 19903 West Ave. A, Cut Off, are facing charges for the burglaries and criminal damage to property, LPSO Public Information Officer Larry Weidel said.



Vandals broke into 11 golf cart sheds at the country club late Oct. 11 or early Oct. 12 and caused serious damage to the carts and golf greens, LPSO Sheriff Craig Webre said.

Private club members owned five of the carts damaged; the other six belonged to the club, he said.



Maintenance crews discovered the damage early Oct. 13, the sheriff said. One cart had been driven into a pond; several were rammed into each other; and one was run into the Tidelands Country Club sign, he said. One cart was found up against a fence.



In addition, one member’s golf clubs were strewn about the course and a few were broken, Webre said.

Guidry was arrested Oct. 20 and charged with 11 counts of burglary and 12 counts of felony criminal damage to property. Weidel said the Galliano teen confessed to deputies and warrants were issued for his accomplices.

Devin Michael Guidry turned himself in at the Lafourche Parish Detention Center in Thibodaux on Oct. 30. He was booked with 11 counts of simple burglary and 12 counts of simple criminal damage to property. His bond was set at $50,000, which he posted that day, the spokesman said.

Bradshaw turned himself in at the South Lafourche Sub-station. Weidel said he waived his rights, and made a full confession to deputies. He was charged with 11 counts of simple burglary and 12 counts of simple criminal damage to property. His bond was set at $50,000.

Friday, Lerille turned himself in at the South Lafourche Su-station. He was booked on 11 counts of simple burglary and 12 counts of simple criminal damage to property, Weidel said. State District Judge Walter Lanier Jr. set his bond at $50,000, which Lerille posted that day.

On Friday morning, at the LPSO’s Criminal Investigation Division in Lockport, Rousse was arrested. He was charged with being an accessory after the fact to simple burglary and simple criminal damage to property. His bond was set at $4,000.

Weidel said Rousse brought the other men to the Tideland golf course and picked them up later.
