Bossier City police arrested three people overnight for stealing metal from the KCS rail yard in the 800 block of East Third Street after officers caught them fleeing the scene. Police arrested 44-year old Sherry Yulanda Jones, 20-year old Timeka Anjelica Williams and 26-year old Gregory Griffin Jr., all of Shreveport, on theft charges.

Police received a call from a witness who reported seeing three people taking items from the rail yard and then flee the area in a pickup truck. Patrol officers located a truck fitting the description of the suspect vehicle not far from the rail yard on East Texas Street and Bass Pro Drive and initiated a traffic stop. All three suspects were taken into custody and police recovered several pieces of metal components and along with various pieces of scrap metal all valued at approximately $5000 from the bed of the pickup.

All three suspects were booked into the Bossier City Jail. Griffin was also booked with disturbing the peace/drunk due to his intoxicated state.
