Suspect in multiple vehicle burglaries in jail
A tip led detectives to the suspect wanted in connection with more than a dozen vehicle burglaries over the past few weeks.
Detectives with the Bossier City Police Department’s Property Crimes Unit arrested 35-year-old Glenn Curtis Young Jr. of Shreveport Monday night after receiving the tip.
That tip led authorities to young’s home in the 2700 block of Fairfield Avenue, where he was taken into custody with the assistance of Shreveport police.
Following questioning by Bossier City detectives, Young was booked into the Bossier City Jail on multiple counts of simple burglary in connection with more than a dozen recent vehicle burglaries that have occurred since January.
The suspect was recently caught on camera at a local retail store using a stolen credit card that was taken in one of the break-ins. He was also seen driving a blue SUV, which was also caught on the security camera video.
Detectives recovered a number of items from Young’s residence that are believed to have been stolen. These include electronics, GPS navigation devices, firearms, tools, credit cards and laptop computers.
Detectives also recovered Young’s blue GMC Envoy, which also contained suspected stolen property.
