Matthew Hall

 The Bossier Sheriff Office is seeking the public’s help in locating a Benton man wanted for felony theft for stealing from his former employer.

Matthew Brian Hall, 28, 3700 block of Highway 160 in Benton, is wanted for Felony Identity Theft, Felony Theft, Felony Unauthorized Use of Motor Vehicle, Felony Unauthorized Use of a Movable and Misdemeanor Theft. Bossier detectives determined that Hall, who used to work for Gator Farms in Plain Dealing, accepted $900 in delivery fees for himself instead of for the company, after taking cows and selling them at auction to locations in Louisiana and Mississippi in the company truck and trailer. He also used the company truck and trailer of his former employer without their permission after he was terminated, and he used the company credit card over the summer to pay for $2,000 in personal expenses.

Hall is a white male, 5’ 8”, 140 pounds with blue eyes and brown hair. He was known to be in the Benton area as recently as Monday but believed to have fled to Springhill to a relative’s house. 

Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of Hall is asked to call Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100. You can also submit a tip via the Bossier Crime Stoppers website www.bossiercrimestoppers.org. Persons who contact Crime Stoppers are reminded they may remain totally anonymous.

Here’s an interesting thought. Why is it that Louisiana and neighboring state Mississippi are always on the bottom of every national ranking involving virtually every aspect of a state’s quality of life? Yet casino gambling is widespread throughout both states at a level not found any place else in America outside of Las Vegas.

On April 28, citizens of Shreveport face a choice: Fund basic city services or plunge the city into fiscal chaos. It would have been inconceivable 20 years ago that routine tax renewals to fund the fire and police departments and other basic city services would not have the collective support of the city’s business, civic and political leadership.
