Tip Leads to Armed Robbery Arrest

Marvin Hayes

Sheriff Newell Normand announces the arrest of Marvin Hayes, B/M, 49, of Harvey, for one count of Armed robbery in reference to an offense that occurred on July 20, 2017 in the 400 block of Lapalco Boulevard in unincorporated Gretna.

As was released yesterday, the individual believed to commit the robbery had previously entered the victimized business about 45 minutes prior to the robbery. Less than 24 hours after we released images of the suspect to the local media, our Robbery Section received a tip regarding his identity. The tipster directed our investigators to Brown, who was located at his residence in the 1900 block of Breckenridge Drive in Harvey by members of our Street Crimes Unit.

During an interview with our Robbery detectives, Hayes admitted that the individual depicted in the photographs released to the media was him, but denied committing the robbery. He was, however, wearing some articles of clothing at the time of his arrest that appeared to be the same as those worn by the suspect. Those items were seized, and Hayes was arrested on a warrant secured in reference to the offense.

A photograph of Hayes is attached.

We would like to extend our thanks to the media for helping to quickly distribute the images of the suspect to the public.
