Suspected Car Thief Caught By Caddo Deputies After Car Crash

A suspected car thief's run from the law didn't last long.

Just before ten Wednesday night, Caddo Parish deputies got word about a car stolen from the Colquitt Road area.

Corporal John Hay soon spotted the car on Walker Road and gave chase.

Deputies say the suspect took off at a high rate of speed, blowing through red lights.

He wound up crashing the car at Walker Road and Hoyte, then he ran from the scene.

Caddo deputies and Shreveport Police combed the area, and about 30 minutes later found the suspect at the Burger King on Mansfield Road.

He's in the Caddo Correctional Center facing numerous charges.

The accident snapped a guide wire on a utility pole. SWEPCO crews were also on the scene for repairs.
