  • 16-year-old juvenile also charged with three counts of simple burglary.

The suspects went through neighborhoods in Forrest Hills, Merrywoods, and the Princeton and Winfield areas in January and February and stole weapons, purses, wallets and other items from unlocked vehicles. 

Detectives say that most of the stolen firearms have been recovered, and Bossier detectives are continuing their investigation as they seek possible additional suspects and the recovery of remaining stolen items.

“Our patrol deputies did a remarkable job in making the initial arrests of three of these thieves, which led to a thorough investigation by our detectives, which further led to the other four getting arrested,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington. 

Sheriff Whittington encourages residents to lock their vehicles and remove valuable items out of plain site in the vehicle.  All of these burglaries were from unlocked vehicles.
