On March 20, 2018, Brandon Mungia of Prairieville, LA., age 23, pled guilty to Armed Robbery. Mungia was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Kenneth Dupaty, and presiding over this matter was the Honorable Judge Alvin Turner Jr. This guilty plea was the result of a plea agreement with prosecutors following a 2016 robbery.

On April 19, 2016, deputies with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office responded to a Gonzales convenience store in reference to an armed robbery. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with the victim in this matter, Keith Braud, who advised that he was awakened by several male subjects inside of his residence, one of which was armed with a shotgun, and another armed with a black handgun later determined to be a toy gun. The suspects took the victim’s credit card and instructed the victim to drive them to a local bank where a quantity of U.S. currency was withdrawn. The suspects then instructed the victim to drive them to a local convenience store where detectives determined the three male suspects fled the area in a second vehicle. A short while later, patrol deputies initiated a traffic stop on the suspect vehicle and made contact with Mungia, Matthew Everett, Nicholas Everett, and Johnny Everett. All four subjects were identified as the individuals who committed the robbery.

During the course of their investigation, detectives learned that the victim in this matter, Keith Braud, had previously sold marijuana to one of the suspects. During a search of Braud’s residence, detectives located a quantity of marijuana inside. Braud along with the four robbery suspects were subsequently arrested and booked into the Ascension Parish Detention Center.
