SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -
Two people face burglary charges following their arrests in connection with a residential burglary in south Shreveport Monday.
At about 9:15 a.m. Monday, Shreveport police responded to a residential burglary at a home in the 8700 block of South Emerald Loop. The homeowner told officers that he heard someone knocking on his front door and moments later saw an unknown male kicking in the carport door. When the homeowner went outside to investigate, the suspect allegedly fled down the driveway and into an awaiting getaway car driven by an unknown female.
The homeowner described the car as a maroon, four-door Toyota Camry with fading paint and also provided descriptions of both suspects.
On Tuesday, while on their assigned beat, Shreveport police officers Rodney Medlin and Brutus Pouncy saw a vehicle matching the description of the getaway vehicle and conducted a traffic stop. The driver, 20-year-old Whakila Dixon of the 400 block of West 81st Street in Shreveport, was arrested for driving under a suspended license.
Her passenger, 24-year-old Leon Stevenson, was not immediately arrested. However, during a follow-up investigation, Shreveport Police property crimes detectives were able to identify Stevenson as the man who allegedly committed the residential burglary the day before.
Stevenson was located Wednesday at a home in the 6300 block of Tulsa Avenue, where he was arrested and taken to police headquarters. During interviews with Stevenson, police learned that Dixon was the alleged driver of the getaway car used in the burglary.
Both suspects have been charged with burglary of an inhabited dwelling.
