The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office arrested a 17-year-old from Chalmette and two male juveniles from eastern St. Bernard for stealing a pick-up truck, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

Ryan Lewis, 17, of the 3500 block of Packenham Drive in Chalmette, was arrested on Wednesday, May 23, along with a 16-year-old Violet boy and a 15-year-old boy from Meraux.

Lewis and the two juveniles were each booked with one count of theft of a motor vehicle for stealing a 2005 Ford F-150 from the 400 block of West Solidell Street in Chalmette.

The three were identified by detectives after one of them posted on social media a video of them riding in the truck.

Lewis was transported to St. Bernard Parish Prison where he is being held on a $10,000 bond. The two juveniles are being held in the St. Bernard Parish Juvenile Detention Center.

The investigation is ongoing and additional charges may be filed, Sheriff Pohlmann said.
