Burglary lands three suspects behind bars
Two teenagers along with an adult male were arrested in the wake of an investigation into the burglary of a west Shreveport home.
Just before midnight Sunday, a Shreveport police officer was patrolling near the 3000 block of Alabama Avenue when he saw a group of people gathered near a vehicle in the block.
When they saw the police officer, the group of individuals quickly left the area, fleeing in opposite directions.
Upon observing the subjects’ peculiar behavior, officers stopped and detained three of the individuals.
During the officer’s probe of the incident, a report of a residential burglary was received within a one-block radius from where the group was detained.
Upon further investigation, it was learned that property that had been stolen from inside the burglarized home was found on the person of one of the detainees.
The three suspects were subsequently transported to Shreveport police headquarters, where property crimes detectives conducted interviews.
During the course of the interviews, additional information and evidence was gathered linking 17- year-old Jamar Trotter of the 3100 block of Woodford Street and two
14-year-old juvenile males to the burglary.
Additional property stolen in the burglary was recovered at the residence of one of the alleged suspects and returned to the homeowner.
Following interviews, the three suspects were arrested and charged with a single count of burglary of an inhabited dwelling.
The juveniles were booked into the Caddo Juvenile Detention Center while Trotter was booked into the Shreveport City Jail.
