[UPDATE] Bossier City Police Arrest Two Carjacking Suspects
[UPDATE Dec. 2nd, 2013] Bossier City police have arrested two people wanted in connection with last week’s carjacking at the Circle K on Barksdale Boulevard at Hamilton Road.
A Bossier Crime Stoppers tip led detectives to obtain arrest warrants for 46-year-old Noel Wayne Smith of Prairieville, Louisiana, and 46-year-old Tamara Amo of Spokane, Washington. Smith was located in Bossier City, and Amo was picked up the same day in Lafayette after Bossier detectives learned of her location.
Smith is now at Bossier Max, and arrangements are being made to extradite Amo back to Bossier City. They’re both charged with armed robbery. Police recovered the stolen vehicle in Shreveport. (NOTE: Mug shot of Amo is unavailable, since she was arrested in another jurisdiction.)
