Man Accused Of Selling Borrowed Tools To Pawn Shop

Police say they've captured a hardware store fraudster.

Bossier Parish deputies arrested 29-year old Robert Joe Morgan of Shreveport on charges of theft by fraud and forgery.

They say Morgan used a fake name to sign-out a chain saw and angle grinder from a hardware store in Benton before selling them at a Shreveport pawn shop.

Investigators say Morgan confessed to having a drug addiction after catching him trying the same crime in Bossier City.
