At about 2 a.m. Wednesday, Shreveport Police Officer Jonathan Varnell observed a male suspect holding a tote bag standing near a vehicle with its door open in the 500 block of Dudley Drive.
When Officer Varnell confronted the man, he immediately fled on foot in an apparent attempt to elude police.
Following a brief foot pursuit, the suspect, later identified as 18- year-old Jacody Wilson, was taken into custody.
Items were recovered that police believe were taken from the vehicle on Dudley Drive.
Moments later and a few blocks away, assisting patorlmen located 18-year-old Fabian Alexander and 18-year-old Kentravious Hardison, who were detained.
Upon further investigation, officers discovered evidence indicating that both Anderson and Hardison were involved in the crime as well.
Detectives were immediately notified and are continuing to work to determine if the teenagers are responsible for any other similar crimes in the area.
Wilson, of the 1200 block of Crofton Street, Anderson, of the 2900 block of Samford Avenue, and Hardison, of the 9200 block of Davy Drive, were all booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count of simple burglary each.
