“The man was just sitting in his car in front of a residence when he was attacked,” Capt. Pat Yoes, a spokesman for the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office said. “After he was robbed he was able to go to a nearby relative’s house where he notified the Sheriff’s Office.”

Jonathan Simmons, and his 73-year-old grandmother, Ethel Mae Simmons, were arrested in July 2010 after authorities say nearly $10,000 worth of drugs were found in their home.
Police say they uncovered 698 grams of marijuana with a street value of $3,400, 99.2 grams of crack cocaine with a street value of $4,410 and 5.5 grams of powder cocaine worth $550 on the street, inside the home of Jonathan and Ethel Mae Simmons.
Both reside at 190 JB Green Road.
The drugs were found in two bedrooms inside the home and also in a shed outside. Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Dwayne LaGrange said the drugs were hidden and that officers used trained dogs to uncover the stash.
