Abuse call leads to large cache of stolen high-ticket items

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A domestic abuse call leads Shreveport Police to a house-full of stolen high-priced goods.

When Shreveport Police arrived at the home on Lillian Street Thursday afternoon, they noticed a lot of big-ticket merchandise, like computers, flat-screen TVs, and even high-end appliances, many of them still in boxes.

"When interviewing the female involved, we found out items in the house were possibly stolen, and a little bit further investigation showed that the suspect works for an air freight company locally. We contacted them and we found they do have some things missing that match some of the items in the house," said Shreveport Police Sgt. Mike Day.

Police say Everett Sloan's employer confirmed he no longer works there.

It turns out there's already a warrant for Sloan's arrest out of Dallas, where he is believed to have stolen items right off the freight company's loading docks.

Right now Sloan is charged with domestic abuse battery, but other charges are pending.
