SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

Shreveport police say they caught a suspected serial burglar in the act early Friday morning, after a call reporting suspicious activity led officers to a home in the 2600 block of Jewella Avenue.

Officers arrived at the home just after 5 a.m. and found a man matching the description of a man that had been seen in the area "lurking" around the property, possibly burglarizing vehicles.

The man fled and officers pursued for a short distance, before the suspect's vehicle crashed into a home near the intersection of Dollarway Street and West Canal Boulevard. The officers chased the man on foot to his home in the 3200 block of Wagner Street.

There, 18-year-old Zerquario Reddix was taken into custody. Police say they also found numerous items inside the home that are believed to have been stolen during a host of other reported burglaries which occurred over the course of the last year. 

Police say additional items believed to have been stolen also were located inside Reddix's wrecked vehicle.

Reddix was treated at University Medical Center for minor injuries suffered in the crash and later booked into the Shreveport City Jail on four counts of possession of stolen things and one count each of hit and run driving and resisting an officer.  As the investigation continues, detectives suspect Reddix may have connection to additional burglaries throughout the city.
