Third suspect sought for stealing shingles

The Bossier Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s assistance in locating a man wanted for stealing bundles of shingles from a construction site in Benton after two other suspects have already been taken into custody.

Enrique “Rickey” Palmer, 25, of Shreveport, is wanted in connection with stealing one and a half pallets of shingles worth about $2,800 last week from a home under construction in the 1400 block of Suwannee Lane in Woodlake Ridge subdivision.

His two cohorts in crime, Lynesha McCall and Paul Thompson, both of Shreveport, were apprehended shortly before midnight on July 30 when a patrol deputy noticed McCall acting suspiciously in the neighborhood.

It was later learned that McCall was acting as lookout for Thompson and Palmer, who were loading bundles of shingles into a box-style U-Haul truck.

McCall and Thompson were arrested, while Palmer remains on the loose.

All three suspects are of interest in several similar thefts in Bossier and Caddo parishes.

Anyone with any information regarding the whereabouts of Palmer or about these thefts should contact Bossier Crime Stoppers at 424-4100 or the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at 965- 2203.

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.
