Three Arrested for Overnight Burglary at Local High School
A teenager and two juveniles have been arrested after police say they broke into a local high school during the overnight hours.
Shreveport Police were dispatched to C. E. Byrd High School in the 3200 block of Line Avenue just before 1:30 AM Tuesday morning to investigate a burglary. When officers arrived on scene, they were contacted by Caddo Parish School Board Security personnel who quickly confirmed that a burglary had taken place. Patrol officers immediately established a perimeter and began their search. The suspects were spotted nearby and a foot chase ensued.
Three suspects, 17-year-old Kenneth Morris and two juveniles, were taken into custody and found to be in possession of stolen items from the school, as well as the tools used to commit the burglary.
Morris was booked into Shreveport City Jail and the two juveniles were booked into Caddo Parish Juvenile Detention Center. Each was charged with one count of simple burglary and one count of resisting arrest.
