Lake Charles, LA –


On September 23 at approximately 2:00 a.m. Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a residence on Tom Hebert Road in Lake Charles in reference to a disturbance involving a gun.


During the initial investigation it was discovered the victim’s neighbor, Yosvanis L. Carballosa, 27, 5859 Tom Hebert Road, Lake Charles, fired his handgun towards the victim’s home after an argument, causing a bullet to hit the house.  The bullet traveled through the wall of the residence and into the victim’s bedroom, where he was sleeping. 


Carballosa barricaded himself inside his residence when deputies arrived.  The CPSO ACT-Team (Anti-Crime and Tactical Team) responded and was able to make entry into the home and take Carballosa into custody.


He was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with illegal use of weapons; and aggravated criminal property damage.  Judge Tony Fazzio set his bond at $50,000.


CPSO Detectives Garrett Laborde is the lead investigator on this case. 


An arrest is an indication that probable cause exists to believe the subject was involved in the offense alleged.   A person is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
