Additional Charges in Residential Burglary Cases
A Bienville Parish man arrested earlier this week has been charged in connection with eight residential burglaries in Shreveport's South Highland and Broadmoor neighborhoods. Donald Pickett was arrested March 7th -- after police receive a tip linking him to what authorities believe was an attempted residential burglary at a home in the 4000 block of Baltimore. Investigators have now charged the 44-year-old with eight additional counts of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling. Detectives stress, however, that they believe Pickett is responsible for the bulk of the home burglaries in those areas over the past several months, and anticipate more charges against him.
