New details in burglary inquiry lands suspect behind bars

One man is cleared while another man faces charges following the emergence of new evidence in connection with a residential burglary in south Shreveport earlier this month.

At about 5:30 a.m. July 5, Shreveport patrol officers responded to a home in the 11000 block of Longfellow Circle in reference to a burglary in progress.

The victim reported that she discovered an unknown male suspect in her garage stealing items.

The suspect fled the scene before officers arrived.

During the initial investigation, detectives took 21-year-old Tylor Toney of the 3000 block of Nona Circle into custody on an outstanding warrant for his arrest charging him with one count of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and two counts of simple burglary.

On Tuesday, police investigators were presented with additional information regarding the burglary, suggesting another man was possibly responsible for the crime.

Based on this new information, detectives discovered that it was actually 18-year-old Colin Driscoll who was responsible for the burglaries on Longfellow Circle.

Driscoll, of the 10000 block of Belle Court Way in Shreveport, was taken into custody and booked into the Shreveport City Jail on two counts of simple burglary. He was also charged with a single count of attempted simple burglary, simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and simple criminal damage to property for his alleged role in similar crimes.

On Wednesday, police withdrew charges against Tylor Toney in connection with the Longfellow Circle burglaries, but he remains jailed for his alleged role in at least one other residential burglary committed in the Haven subdivision in south Shreveport.
