Houma City Police Chief, Dana Coleman, and Terrebonne Parish Sheriff, Tim Soignet, said that their two agencies working together resulted in the capture of a Murder Suspect wanted by New Orleans Police Dept. On 10-27-2020 Houma Police Dept. Received information that Anfernee Steele (a 21-year-old from Houma) was hiding in an apartment in the Village East area.
Steele had active arrest warrants out of New Orleans for 2nd Degree Murder and 2nd Degree Cruelty To A Juvenile. This stems from the murder of a 4-year-old earlier this month. This incident occurred in New Orleans.
Upon receiving this information Houma Police coordinated with The Terrebonne Parish Sheriff’s Office and the United States Marshalls. The three agencies worked together to take Steele into custody safely.
Steele was jailed at the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Complex. He was later transferred to New Orleans by the United States Marshalls.
