Man accused of stealing rent checks, money orders from lock boxes at Bossier apartment complexes arrested
BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - The Bossier City Police Department has arrested a man accused of stealing checks and money orders from lock boxes at a couple of apartment complexes in the area.
Police say they received reports from two complexes (Misty Hollow Apartments and Parkland Villa Apartments) about the theft of rent checks and money orders from lock boxes. On June 3, officers surveilled Parkland Villa and reportedly caught the suspect in the act. They reportedly watched the suspect, identified as Alfredo Quinones, 30, walk up to a lock box and pull some sort of tool out of his pants. When confronted, Quinones reportedly ran from officers.
Officers quickly caught Quinones and arrested him. He was booked into the Bossier City Jail for felony theft and resisting an officer. He’s suspected of stealing nearly $6,000 in rent checks and money orders, police say.
Police say while executing a search warrant on Quinones’ car, they reportedly found more evidence linking him to the crime.
The investigation is ongoing.
