Bam! More arrests to report on the Wheel of Justice

(WGNO) -- The holidays are a time when people count their blessings.  Our Wheel of Justice crew thought it would also be a good time to count arrests.

Before we get started, there's no way we would even think of taking credit for every arrest.  But between our reports, your tips, and great police work, suspects keep landing behind bars.

We begin with a pair of bank robberies.  A day after we told you about the search for whoever robbed a couple of banks on the west bank, the FBI announced the arrest of 33-year-old Eric Mallory of Gretna.

Then there was the bank robbery that happened in Mid-City on the morning that LSU played Alabama.  The robber wore a 'Bama hat!  Within days, FBI agents arrested 43-year-old Kristen Williams in New Orleans.

When we told you about the suspects in a murder case at a motel in the Covington area, turns out there were four and they've all been arrested.  And New Orleans police wanted help finding a man named Kenneth Barnes who was blamed four at least five armed robberies at businesses around the city.  He's also behind bars.

We plan to keep spreading the word.  So you do your part and keep phoning in tips.  The number to CrimeStoppers is 504-822-1111.  You don't have to reveal your name or testify, and there could be a cash reward waiting for you.

So far, more than 330 people have been arrested after their cases rolled on the Wheel of Justice.
