On Wednesday, February 2, 2022, at approximately 2109 hours, the Avoyelles Parish 911 Communication Center received a call reporting three male subjects made forced entry into a residence located at 6163 Louisiana Highway 114 Mansura, Louisiana.

Further investigation revealed that 20-year-old Andrew Seiss of Mansura, La, a juvenile of Mansura, La, and an unknown black male subject committed the offenses of Home Invasion, Armed Robbery and Aggravated Battery against the resident.
On February 3, 2022, a 12th Judicial District Court Judge issued Arrest Warrants for the arrest of Seiss and the juvenile. A Search Warrant was also issued for the search of Seiss’ residence in Mansura.
Upon executing the search warrant and arrest warrant, APSO Detectives and Patrol Deputies made contact with Andrew Seiss inside the residence. Seiss was uncooperative and refused to comply with lawful orders. Upon Deputies attempting to arrest Seiss and take him into custody, Seiss resisted by force by striking a Deputy in the head with a handgun he had concealed, and by violently fighting, kicking and striking Deputies. Seiss was arrested and found to be in possession of two (2) handguns with obliterated serial numbers and a small amount of Marijuana. Four (4) other firearms were seized pending further investigation. Seiss was subsequently booked at the APSO DC-1 Jail Facility. One Deputy was treated for minor to moderate head injuries at Avoyelles Hospital Emergency Room. The Deputy is doing well now.
