Authorities capture three burglary suspects
Three suspects wanted in connection with a burglary in Shreveport have been arrested.
Bossier sheriff’s detectives had obtained a search warrant for the residence of 38-year-old Roger A. Burgdorf of the 2800 block of Patricia Drive in Bossier City after Shreveport police developed information that linked his address to a residential burglary in Shreveport New Year’s Day.
Detectives with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office, Shreveport Police Department and Bossier City Police Department executed the warrant last Thursday afternoon, Feb. 20, and recovered stolen items at Burgdorf’s residence.
Authorities recovered a Rolex watch, handgun, collectable baseball cards and sports memorabilia and the victim’s birth certificate and personal effects.
Detectives also linked Burgdorf to recent Bossier City burglaries after they found stolen items in his residence that were taken from Bossier City business and vehicle burglaries.
In addition to the stolen items, detectives also discovered methamphetamine, marijuana and an assortment of controlled prescription narcotics.
Burgdorf’s roommates, 27-year-old Emily Amanda Thrash and 37-year-old John “J.T.” Thomson III, were not at the residence during the search and were wanted as well.
Burgdorf was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of firearms with narcotics, illegal possession of stolen things, illegal possession of a stolen firearm, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility.
Lt. Bill Davis of the Bossier Sheriff’s Office said the remaining two suspects were arrested at a Shreveport hotel by Shreveport police Sunday night and booked into the Caddo Correctional Center. They were transferred to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility on Monday morning and charged with felony illegal possession of stolen things, two counts of possession of Xanax, two counts of possession of morphine and methamphetamine and one count of possession of marijuana. Both have bonds of $26,000.
