Authorities capture four burglary suspects

Four suspects including three juveniles are facing charges following their arrests last week in connection with the burglary of an east Shreveport home.

Just after noon on Thursday, July 17, Shreveport police patrol officers responded to a burglary in progress at a home in the 6200 block of Dillingham Avenue.

When officers arrived on the scene, four suspects were seen fleeing the residence on foot.

Following a brief foot chase, authorities apprehended all of the suspects on neighboring streets.

Property crimes detectives soon arrived on the scene. During their preliminary investigation, it was learned that two occupants were inside the residence at the time an unknown male juvenile arrived and rang the doorbell.

The occupants of the home did not answer the door, at which time the initial male, along with three others, moved to the rear of the house and subsequently gained entry through a window.

It was further learned that the occupants exited their home and notified police.

At the home, investigators gathered information and evidence linking the four detained suspects to the burglary.

Officers also recovered some of the stolen property from the person of one of the suspects.

In all, three juvenile males along with one adult male were taken into custody and transported to police headquarters.

Following subsequent interviews with authorities, the three juveniles, ranging in age from 14 to 15, were each charged with a single count of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling.

The adult male, 17-year-old Clyde McConnell of the 200 block of E. 68th Street in Shreveport, was also charged with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling.

The juveniles were transported and booked into the Caddo Juvenile Detention Center, while McConnell was booked into the Shreveport City Jail.

As the investigation continues, detectives are working to determine if the suspects are also responsible for similar crimes in the area.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught. The governor is hollering that the financial sky is falling and the state is in dire fiscal straights. Legislators protest that their hands are tied by too many constitutional dedications.

It was much to my amazement that literally hundreds of Ukrainian girls were actually interested in me. Throughout each day, I would receive e-mails from the agency, with each e-mail sending a message from a woman interested in dating me.
