Folsom Man Robbed in Retaliation for Selling ‘Bad Drugs'

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office arrested two people this week after they forced their way
into a Folsom area home shortly after midnight Monday morning (April 1, 2019) and robbed and pistol whipped a man. They told detectives the robbery was in retaliation after the man sold them bad drugs.

Alexis Walker (18) of Madisonville and Kristopher Wild (22) of Covington are accused of forcing their way into a home on Doris Road near Folsom and pistol-whipping Sean Burns (27), robbing him of $15 cash and his cellphone. Burns reportedly had sold the two something that was supposedly methamphetamine just days prior. When they realized the drugs were fake, they hatched the scheme to rob Burns in retaliation.

A search warrant executed at Wild’s residence, uncovered the firearm believed to have been used in the crime. Walker and Wild were charged with Aggravated Burglary with a Dangerous Weapon and Obstruction of Justice

It was discovered during the investigation that Burns was wanted on an outstanding warrant for contempt of court on unrelated charges. He was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on April 3, 2019. 

The case is still under investigation and additional charges are possible.
