Bossier Sheriff’s Office detectives have arrested the suspect wanted for the burglary of the Showdown Saloon in Princeton that occurred back on Aug. 7.

Bossier detectives were able to use DNA evidence at the crime scene to further their investigation.  They executed a search warrant at Keith’s residence where they found part of the Ghillie suit used in the burglary, as well as methamphetamine at the residence.  Detectives believe Keith is the primary suspect in the burglary, but they don’t believe he acted alone in the burglary.  Other arrests are pending as the investigation continues.

Keith was already incarcerated at the Bossier Maximum Security Facility after he was arrested Aug. 23 on another simple burglary charge from the Haughton Police Department for burglarizing a residence in Haughton.  Detectives simply added the new charges, and he faces a $90,000 bond on all three charges.

The ATM machine that he stole from the saloon has yet to be located, and anyone with information about this case or the location of the ATM is asked to contact Bossier Crime Stoppers with your anonymous tip at (318) 424-4100.
