Arrest 2300 Block of Congress Street

An armed man wanted on both international-INTERPOL and domestic felony warrants is now in law enforcement custody in Lafayette Parish, thanks to the Sheriff’s Real Time Crime Center (RTCC) and Lafayette Sheriff’s Office SWAT operators.

In a collaborative effort with the Lafayette Office of Homeland Security, 32-year-old Joel Herrera was arrested Monday afternoon in the 2300 block of Congress Street on charges of Aggravated Burglary (Felony), Battery of a Dating Partner (Felony) and for a robbery warrant issued by Interpol out of Honduras carrying worldwide extradition. Herrera was also found to be in possession of a firearm and police paraphernalia at the time of his arrest. This remains an ongoing investigation and additional charges are expected.
