Bossier Sheriff’s Office detectives levied charges of burglary Monday to two men already incarcerated after the detectives allege the two ripped off a Princeton business in mid-July.
Robert E. Traylor, 26, of the 2600 block of Horacek in Haughton, and Jeffery G. Davis, 36, of the 4800 block of Camellia Lane in Bossier City were charged with one count each of simple burglary for stealing from the Showdown Saloon on Highway 80 in Princeton early morning of July 15.
Traylor, a former employee at the saloon who had a working knowledge of the business, and Davis are charged with stealing two safes containing more than $3,000, a handgun, a laptop computer and surveillance equipment. Both admitted to detectives to being at the business during the burglary, but each blames the other for actually going into the business through the back window to steal the items.
Traylor and Davis were already incarcerated at the Bossier Maximum Security Facility on unrelated charges, but both now have simple burglary charges added to their record.
