The sheriff’s office said Slyyeh allegedly attempted to hire the prospective hit man to kill a person with whom he co-owned a gas station-convenience store outside Slidell.

A warrant was issued and Slyyeh turned himself in to the St. Tammany Parish jail on Feb. 3.


“I am very proud of the hard work of our deputies and detectives,” Sheriff Randy Smith said, noting, “This particular incident could have ended with someone getting hurt, but instead everyone is safe and the perpetrator is in custody.”
