A Webster Parish man has been charged by Shreveport Police in connection with a burglary reported this morning in Shreveport’s middle-class Broadmoor neighborhood.

At approximately 10:40 a.m. this morning, Shreveport Police patrol officers responded to a reported burglary in progress call at a home in the 200 block of Justin Avenue.

Upon arrival there officers contacted the victim who advised that he returned to his home just after 10:30 a.m. and observed a suspicious vehicle in his driveway.  The victim entered his home and was confronted by a male suspect.  Upon seeing the victim, the suspect ran from the house and got into the car in the driveway and fled the scene of the crime. The victim was not injured.

The victim was able to give investigators the license plate number of the suspect’s vehicle and, in short order, detectives traced the car to 45 year old Edgar Charles Brooks of Sibley, Louisiana.  Authorities with the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office were immediately notified and they subsequently located Brooks and the car in Webster Parish where he was summarily taken into custody.  Brooks, of the 200 block of Nursery Road in Sibley, was booked into the Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Facility.  Shreveport Police detectives have now obtained a warrant charging Edgar Charles Brooks with one count of aggravated burglary and will be traveling to Webster Parish to bring him back to Shreveport.  His bond is set at $150,000.

Detectives believe Brooks could be to blame for other burglaries and they will be following up on this arrest to determine if he is indeed responsible for other similar crimes.  Anyone with any information regarding this suspect or any other burglaries is urged to call Shreveport Police detectives at 318-673-6985 or Shreveport-Caddo Parish Crime Stoppers at 318-673-7373.
