An investigation that began in December 2012 involving a home invasion has been solved by DNA evidence.  Detectives working the case recovered evidence from an incident where an unidentified male had kicked in the door and demanded money.  When the suspect was unable to get money from the two occupants of the residence, he fired several shots inside the home.  One of those shots hit the male resident requiring him to receive medical assistance.  Detective Rodney Daigle, who was assigned to the case, submitted the evidence to the Acadiana Crime Lab for analysis and that evidence led to the DNA match of a suspect that has been identified as Jared Freeman, 20 of 506 north Chataignier Street, Ville Platte.   On April 16, 2013, Freeman was arrested and charged with home invasion, aggravated criminal damage to property, attempted first degree murder, and unauthorized use of a moveable.  Freeman was booked into the Ville Platte City Jail where he remain incarcerated on a $500,000.00 bond set by Judge Thomas Fusilier.


 Chief Lartigue reminds residents to call in any information on illegal activities to the Ville Platte Police Department at 363-1313. Your call will remain anonymous and you can play a role in removing criminals from our streets.
