Suspects arrested on campus

Thanks to an anonymous tip, Grambling State University’s Police Department was able to contribute to the arrest of two Monroe suspects on GSU’s campus.

Terrance Williams, 19, and Josh Chisley, 20, who are not GSU students, were suspected of being invoved in a complex burglary ring that had been under investigation for 18 months.

“We received a tip on where they were and we acted accordingly,” Lt. Ruby Jones of GSU Police Department said. 

Because of the seriousness of the situation, GSU PD informed the Lincoln Parish Sheriff Office. They also contacted Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office in order to get the warrant on the suspects.

Josh Chisley was apprehended Tuesday night in Wheatley Hall and has been charged with armed robbery and home invasion. Williams was apprehended Wednesday morning in Pinchback Hall and has been charged with attempted second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and several counts of burglary.

 “It worked out very well with us collaborating with other law enforcement agencies because the students safety was our main focus and we were able to apprehended the suspects without incidents,” Jones added.  

Now with the two arrests on GSU’s campus, there are nine suspects in custody related to the crime, and the police are still looking for one more.

The two who were arrested, along with a third suspect, Demarcus Chisley, ran from the police on Tuesday night and Chisley is still wanted.

If you have any information on Demarcus Chisley, contact the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The arrested capped a chain of crimes that began with a police chase that started Tuesday night in Ouachita Parish.

Earlier this week, there was a shooting on campus at around 10:30 Tuesday night that resulted in the campus being on lock-down. The victim of the shooting suffered minor injuries.  

The shooting and burglary arrest are not related and the shooting is still under investigation.
