On May 21, the authorities in Hammond, Louisiana, began to investigate 23-year-old Tytianna Sims’ report that someone had burglarized her home.
The police believed they had an idea of who might have committed the burglary, and they began to seek out the man, identified as 29-year-old Rory Brett Welda.
Four days later, the police reported that Sims let them know she spotted Welda sitting in a car in front of a residence.
When the authorities went to the address, they saw Welda was still seated in the vehicle.
The police talked to Welda about the burglary, and he was apprehended.
The man reported to the authorities that he was stuck in his car after Sims and another person he identified as 23-year-old Tavi Roach ambushed him and his girlfriend. Welda alleged that Roach and Sims stole their car keys and both of their cell phones while holding them at gunpoint.
Welda was booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail for suspicion of simple burglary.
When they began to search for Sims and Roach regarding the man’s accusations, the police were told by Welda that Sims was at her home.
A search warrant permitting the authorities to look through Sims’s home was obtained.
On May 27, they allegedly discovered that the woman had drugs and weapons in the house.
Sims was placed under arrest, and she is being charged with possession of schedule II drugs, possession of marijuana, possession of a firearm, and armed robbery.
At the time this was written, the police had not yet found Roach.
