Man charged with stalking/attempted first degree murder

Thursday, October 10, 2013

Steven Thomas 25 years old of Lafayette is currently under arrest and being interviewed by Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Deputies after a four week investigation culminated with arrest warrants being issued for 6 counts of stalking and 3 counts of attempted first degree murder. 

On September 15, 2013 just after 1 AM Thomas is accused of firing multiple gunshots into the home of the victims who are known by Thomas.  The residence is located just outside of Carencro in the 100 block of Lindsey Circle.  Additionally threatening text messages to family members of the victim were tracked back to Thomas which is the basis for the stalking charges. 

Thomas will be booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center sometime tonight and bond has not yet been set.
