Police Arrest Escapee Larry Ard
An inmate missing from the Orleans Parish jail since August is once again behind bars.
Police say Larry Ard had created a pretty good cover for himself in the Houston area, working at a manufacturing plant and living at a homeless facility under his brother’s name.
Ard was originally arrested in connection with a purse snatching and parole violations. Orleans Parish deputies say he was able to escape from the temporary housing at the jail and make is escape.
Deputies say they were able to arrest Ard Friday afternoon at the plant where he was working in north Houston.
