CADDO PARISH, La. (KSLA) — A woman has recanted her claim that someone who might have a gun was holed up in a house in Caddo Parish, authorities say.
Now she and a man are suspects in a vehicle burglary.
Caddo sheriff’s deputies responded to an alarm at a house on Jefferson Paige Road at 1:59 p.m. Friday, Caddo 911 dispatch records show.
When they arrived, they noticed a car had been burglarized.
Authorities took the couple into custody.
The woman reportedly told deputies that another man was inside the house and possibly had a gun.
Authorities closed the roadway between Greenwood Road and Clim Avenue.
And a standoff involving about 16 sheriff's deputies ensued.
The confrontation ended and the roadway was reopened Friday evening after the woman, pressed during interrogation, recanted her claim.
The main point, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman said, is there is no dangerous criminal on the loose and no threat to public safety.
