BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A Shreveport man is facing a laundry list of charges in connection with a series of vehicle burglaries in Bossier Parish last month.

According to the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office, 24-year-old Charles A. Philyaw was busted at his Shreveport home with a stolen 4-wheeler by Caddo Parish deputies last week. That 4-wheeler had been taken from a home in the Swan Lake area of Bossier Parish in January.

Charles and his brother, Mathew C. Philyaw, 19, were arrested on theft charges by Caddo deputies, while Charles was additionally charged by Caddo on numerous drug charges.

The Bossier Sheriff's Office had been looking for a man who was caught on video using a stolen debit/credit card that he had taken from vehicle burglaries in the Lakewood and Bayou Bend subdivisions and then used at Bossier businesses. Deputies believe Charles Philyaw is that man.

He was booked into the Bossier corrections facility in Plain Dealing Friday morning on 13 counts of simple burglary, 4 counts of unauthorized use of an access card and 1 count of simple criminal property damage.

In releasing the news of the arrest on Friday, the Bossier Sheriff's Office says detectives want to remind residents to lock their vehicles and remove valuables or other items from plain site in their vehicles to avoid becoming victims.

As always, if you have any information about potential criminal activity in your neighborhood, detectives encourage you to contact Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100.  You can also submit a tip via the Bossier Crime Stoppers website www.bossiercrimestoppers.org.
