Former Shreveport firefighter arrested after alleged threats against fire department
Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — A local man is behind bars charged in connection with a burglary in southeast Shreveport.
At approximately 5:30 a.m. on July 5, 2014, Shreveport Police patrol officers responded to a home in the 11000 block of Longfellow Circle relative to a burglary in progress. The victim reported to authorities she discovered an unknown male suspect in her garage stealing items. The suspect fled the scene of the crime prior to officer arrival.
Detectives initiated an investigation into the burglary and, based on information and evidence gathered during their ongoing inquiry, were able to develop 21 year old Tylor Toney as the suspect responsible for this crime. Investigators subsequently procured a warrant for Toney’s arrest charging him with one count of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and two counts of simple burglary.
Investigators took Toney, of the 3000 block of Nona Circle in Shreveport, into custody without incident yesterday and booked him into the Shreveport City Jail on the arrest warrant. They will continue working to determine if he is responsible for other similar crimes. Anyone with any information concerning this suspect or other burglaries is urged to contact Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373 or www.lockmeup.org
