Information from the Shreveport Police Department:
Two teens along with an adult male are jailed in the wake of an investigation launched into an overnight burglary of a west Shreveport home.
Just before midnight on August 3, 2014, a Shreveport police officer was patrolling near the 3000 block of Alabama Avenue, when he observed a group of subjects gathered near a vehicle parked in the block. Upon observing the officer, the group of individuals quickly left the area, fleeing in opposite directions. Vexed by the subject's peculiar behavior, officers stopped and detained three of the individuals, initially observed.
During officer's probe of the incident, a report of a residential burglary was received within a one block radius from where the group was detained. Upon further investigation, it was learned property stolen from inside the burglarized home was located on the person of one of the detainees. The three suspects were transported to Shreveport Police headquarters, where Property crimes detectives conducted interviews.
During the course of those interviews, additional information and evidence was gathered linking 17 year old Jamar Trotter of the 3100 block of Woodford Street and two 14 year old juvenile males to the burglary. Additional property stolen in the burglary was recovered at the residence of one of the alleged suspects and returned to the homeowner. Following interviews, the trio of troublemakers was arrested and charged with a single count of Burglary of an inhabited dwelling. The juveniles were booked into the Caddo Juvenile Detention Center while Trotter was booked in the Shreveport City Jail. Detectives expect additional charges as the investigation continues.
