Joseph Aaron Cagnolatti, 18, also known as “J,” is wanted on a warrant for attempted first degree murder and attempted armed robbery with a firearm. His last known address is Railroad Avenue in Morgan City. Cagnolatti is the third suspect in a shooting and attempted armed robbery that occurred in the Amelia area in June, St. Mary Parish Sheriff Mark Hebert said.

The shooting occurred outside of a lounge on La. 182 near the Greenwood overpass. Around 2 a.m. on June 14, three males approached the male victim and attempted to rob him. During the attempt, the victim was shot, Hebert said. Thus far in the investigation, the detective assigned to the case developed information regarding the identities of two of the three perpetrators. After that information was released to the public, the detective received tips which led to two arrests, Hebert said.

Paul Charles, 22, of Sixth Street in Morgan City, was arrested June 28 on a warrant for attempted first degree murder and attempted robbery with a firearm.

Dwayne Anthony Skinner of Railroad Avenue in Morgan City, was arrested July 16 on a warrant for attempted armed robbery with a firearm. He was also charged with possession of synthetic cannabinoids and possession of drug paraphernalia.

As the investigation continued, the detective identified the third suspect in the shooting as Cagnolatti, Hebert said. He is believed to be actively evading law enforcement authorities, he said. Because of the nature of the crime, information regarding Cagnolatti has been registered in the National Crime Information Center. Cagnolatti is considered to be violent and should not be approached, Hebert said. Cagnolatti is 5 feet, 8 inches tall weighing 130 pounds and is a black male with black hair and brown eyes.

The only photo law enforcement has of Cagnolatti is a driver’s license photo, which due to privacy laws cannot be released to the public, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Traci Landry said.

Anyone with information regarding Cagnolatti’s whereabouts should contact the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office at 985-384-1622 or 337-828-1960.

On May 14, the St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office received a report of a forged check. While reviewing account transactions, the victim discovered that a personal check in the amount of $250 had been cashed. After speaking with the victim and working with the victim’s bank, the deputy investigating the complaint identified Keller as the suspect who forged and cashed the check, Hebert said.

Keller had been hired by the victim to do some yard work and gained access to a financial document, he said. Keller is also wanted on a warrant for probation parole violation. Keller drives a white Ford Ranger pickup truck.
