Another arrest made in car burglary capers

winbush, ladarren

 Another suspect is behind bars following continuing investigations into a series of car burglaries that has already landed three teens in jail.  

                                     

Shreveport Police detectives arrested 17 year old Ladarren Winbush this morning without incident at a home in the 5300 block of Sussex Street after identifying him as a suspect in a vehicle burglary that occurred earlier this week in the 700 block of Erie Street. Investigators believe Winbush entered an unlocked vehicle there on Erie Street and stole at least two firearms left in the vehicle. Authorities are working at this hour to recover those stolen weapons.

 

Police think the burglary on Erie Street is connected to a similar crime committed in the 500 block of Dudley back in the early morning hours of November 13, 2013. A Shreveport Police patrol officer observed 18 year old Jacody Wilson holding a tote bag standing near a vehicle with its door open there and, when confronted by the patrolman, Wilson fled on foot in an apparent attempt to elude police. Following a brief foot pursuit, he was taken into custody and items were recovered that police believe were taken from the vehicle on Dudley Drive.

 

Subsequent investigation led authorities to 18 year old Fabian Alexander and 18 year old Kentravious Hardison. All three teens were ultimately arrested and booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count of simple burglary each. Winbush, of the 1200 block of Crofton Street in Shreveport, was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count of aggravated burglary.

 

Investigators report they anticipate more arrests will be forthcoming in connection with several vehicle burglaries reported in Shreveport’s historic South Highlands neighborhood. Anyone with any information relative to these crimes is urged to contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373 or www.lockemup.org
