Suspect arrested after burglary of business
A local man is behind bars following his alleged involvement in the burglary of a Shreveport business Sunday morning.
Just after midnight Sunday, Shreveport police patrol officers were dispatched to the 7200 block of Youree Drive in reference to a commercial alarm.
Upon arrival at the scene, officers noticed signs indicating a burglary had occurred at the business. Contact was made
with management of the business, who was advised of the situation.
Property crimes investigators immediately responded to the scene. Authorities recovered surveillance video from the store which captured one man entering the business and taking an undisclosed amount of money from the safe.
Upon processing evidence recovered at the scene, detectives were able to link 32-year-old Patrick Ross Emerson, a former employee of the store, to the crime.
Shreveport police detectives along with patrol officers located Emerson at his residence in the 2800 block of Corbitt Street.
He was taken into police custody without incident and interviewed by detectives at Shreveport police headquarters.
Emerson was booked into the City Jail on one count of simple burglary.
