A Bossier Sheriff’s Office deputy allegedly caught a burglar in the act while the criminal was stealing from the storage building of a south Bossier convenience store in the early morning hours Saturday.
Adrian G. Yerby, 33, of the 3200 block of Jamerson Road in Haughton, was caught with the stolen goods in hand and charged with simple burglary and possession of Schedule IV drugs.
The arrest occurred after the observant deputy noticed a suspicious vehicle parked next to Sligo Country Store on Sligo Road around 3:30 a.m. Saturday. When he approached the vehicle, he found Yerby carrying a trash can. Yerby told the deputy he was taking the trash can because he didn’t think the store needed it. When the deputy looked inside the trash can, he found a leaf blower, to which Yerby admitted to taking from the nearby storage building.
When the deputy searched Yerby’s vehicle, he found Klonopin pills inside a bottle that didn’t have a readable name on it.
Yerby was transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking on the two charges; his bond is set at $35,000.
