Steven Hightower

 A Shreveport man now faces criminal charges following his arrest in connection with the burglary of a Shreveport business last month.


Back on November 15, 2013, Shreveport Police were called to investigate the burglary of the Wholesale Tire Company located in the 900 block of Grimmett Drive in north Shreveport. During investigator's probe of the incident, surveillance video from inside the business helped lead authorities to the identity of one of two men captured on camera.  Authorities with the Shreveport Police Department's Property Crimes Unit were successful in procuring a warrant for the arrest of the suspect, identified as 44 year old Steven Hightower of the 200 block of Wall Street. 


Hightower was located by police and taken into custody on the outstanding warrant and now faces a single count of simple burglary.  Hightower, who is currently being housed at the Caddo Correctional Center, was interviewed by detectives regarding his alleged involvement in the crime.  Authorities are still seeking the identity of the second man as the investigation continues.

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.
