NATCHITOCHES, La. -

A Natchitoches man listed on the Sheriff's Most Wanted List was captured Thursday morning by Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Deputies in the Provencal community according to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff Victor Jones Jr.

Deputies say a NPSO School Resource Officer assigned to Provencal Elementary School received information at around 8:30am on Thursday morning of a suspicious vehicle parked on the grounds of the school.

The Deputy also received information, that Corey Michael Christenson, featured Wednesday afternoon on the Sheriff's facebook and website as being wanted in connection with a home invasion near the Spanish Lake community in Natchitoches Parish during the early morning hours of October 9th, was seen talking to the occupant of the suspicious vehicle.

The concerned citizen also saw Christenson walking from the school grounds to a local business in Provencal, entering a vehicle then leaving.

While additional deputies were responding to the area, the concerned citizen watched the vehicle and provided deputies with its location.

With that information, deputies combed an area on Florida Street in Provencal capturing Christenson while sitting in a vehicle near a abandoned residence.

Corey Michael Christenson, 26 of Natchitoches, was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center, charged with Home Invasion, Aggravated Burglary, Simple Criminal Damage to Property, Simple Battery, Resisting by Flight, and Violation of a Protective Order.

Deputies also identified the occupant of the vehicle parked on the school grounds as Michael Cobb, 32, also of Natchitoches. A warrants check revealed that Cobb was wanted by the Caddo Parish Sheriff's Office on a Bench Warrant for Failure to Appear on Violation of Traffic Laws.

Cobb was booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center and is awaiting transfer to Caddo Parish.
