Murder Suspect Arrested, 4-Year-Old Lucas Calvert Found Safe
Four-year-old Lucas Calvert has been found safe, and his father, 41-year-old James Calvert has been arrested after a traffic stop in West Monroe, Louisiana. Authorities say the boy is fine and is in CPS custody. Calvert is being held on capital murder charges.
Authorities say Calvert was driving the 2004 Buick LeSabre that they were searching for, but the license plate was different – possibly a fake. Reports are that police in West Monroe attempted to pull Calvert over on a traffic violation and a short high speed pursuit ensued. The chase ended after a minor traffic accident. Police say there was no struggle, but they did have to break a window to get Calvert out of the vehicle. He is being held on $2 million bond.
Police says several guns were found in the vehicle. Lucas was in his car seat in the back seat and was unharmed.
