ARABI, La. -- Bonds ranging from $450,000 to $75,000 were set by a judge in St. Bernard Parish on Monday for the seven suspects arrested Friday in the arson destruction of the historic 1850s LeBeau House near the Mississippi River in Arabi.

All of the suspects, one from Arabi, one from Gretna and the others from the Dallas area, are being held in the St. Bernard Parish Prison.

State District Judge Perry Nicosia set a $450,000 bond for 31-year-old Dusten Davenport, the oldest of the group, and believed to be the man who suggested setting a fire, after they had broken into the house Thursday night.

Davenport has been booked with arson and burglary.

Bonds of $350,000 were set for four other men, also booked with arson and burglary, including Jerry Hamblen, Josh Briscoe, Josh Allen and Joseph Landin.

Bryon Meek was booked with accessory to arson and Kevin Barbe was booked with accessory to arson and trespassing. Each of their bonds is set at $350,000.

At this time none of the seven men have made bond, according to the St. Bernard Sheriff's Office.
