A Meraux man has been booked with stalking a Violet woman whom he didn’t have any relationship with and had once met, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

Also, separately a Marrero man was booked with burglary of a Chalmette residence and a Chalmette woman was arrested for unauthorized entry of a neighbor’s apartment during which she committed battery on the other woman and criminal damage to property, the sheriff said.

Christopher Cheairs, 49, 4113 Najolia Lane, was booked July 27 with stalking a woman he didn’t know and had met her once where she worked, then began contacting her and following her, Sheriff Pohlmann said.

The victim told sheriff’s deputies that in late May, Cheairs – whom she didn’t know – happened to come to the place where she worked, spoke with her, and since had been stalking her by sending text messages and photos trying to go out with her and had followed her at least once.

Investigating officers were shown evidence of numerous texts from him, the
sheriff said.

When confronted by a deputy, Cheairs denied any stalking or harassment.

He was arrested and booked into St. Bernard Parish Prison on the stalking count but was released on bond on Aug. 1.

In an unrelated arrest, Rickey Bordelon, 29, of Marrero was booked recently with simple burglary of a Chalmette residence after a neighbor called about 3:30 a.m. and reported a possible burglary in progress, the sheriff said. The caller said someone had entered a residence through a window and a second person was outside.

When deputies arrived, they found Bordelon coming out of the door of the residence involved and a second man, who was intoxicated, was outside.

Bordelon claimed to know the homeowner who was away and said he had a key from her, which he couldn’t produce. Contacted, the owner said Bordelon didn’t have permission to be there and that she hadn’t seen him in a year and wanted to press charges.

Bordelon was taken into custody on the burglary count and is jailed in lieu of bond set at $25,000. The man who was out front of the home, Decorian Jefferson, 21, of Marrero, admitted he had been drinking and said he had gone there with Bordelon but had remained outside. Jefferson was booked with disturbing the peace by being drunk in public.

In the other arrest, Ana Zapata-Dolmo, 24, 3124 Tournefort St., Apt. 104, Chalmette, was booked the evening of July 25 with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, simple battery, criminal damage to property and disturbing the peace.

The suspect had argued with a 25-year-old neighbor who lived in another apartment, then, as the neighbor tried to go back into her place, Zapata pushed in the front door, knocking the other woman down, and went inside, the sheriff said.

The suspect threw the victim back outside the apartment and they struggled before the Sheriff’s Office was called.

Zapata was arrested on the four counts and a man identified as her boyfriend, Cecilio Romero, 36, who lived with her, was booked with disturbing the peace by yelling obscenities at the victim, the sheriff said.s been released om bomd

Zapata has been released on bond.
