Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington says two more burglars were arrested Wednesday in connection with multiple vehicle burglary cases that saw two others previously arrested a few days ago.

Bossier Sheriff’s Office detectives have been aggressively investigating burglaries from cars that have occurred in various Bossier Parish neighborhoods over the past few weeks.  On Oct. 8, they nabbed two suspects; on Wednesday, they nabbed two more crooks who were part of four-person band of thieves.

Dewayne Jones, Jr., 19, of Shreveport, was arrested by Shreveport Police Department Wednesday and transported to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility Thursday morning.  Bossier detectives charged Jones with 17 counts of Simple Burglary (Theft from a Motor Vehicle) with a bond of $170,000.  

Alexa Robinson, 18, of Bossier City, was arrested by Bossier Sheriff’s Office patrol deputies Wednesday. She was charged with 16 counts of Simple Burglary (Theft from a Motor Vehicle), and her bond is set at $160,000 bond.  

Jones and Robinson were arrested in connection with burglaries recently committed by Cody Willis and Melvin Lewis in the Forest Hills, Old River Place, Olde Oaks and Waters Edge subdivision; Willis and Lewis were previously arrested and incarcerated at the Bossier Max.  As detectives have been diligently investigating these crimes, they tacked on additional charges Wednesday to both of these men – seven more Vehicle Burglary charges to Lewis and three more counts of Vehicle Burglary to Willis.  New bond amount for Willis is $412,500; Lewis is set at $270,000.

The investigation continues.
