Citizen Tip Lands Three Men Behind Bars
An early-morning call from a concerned citizen has led to the arrests of three Shreveport men. At about 2:30 this morning, the caller reported that several male suspects had been seen breaking into a residence in the 3000 block of Woodford Street. The caller said the men took a window air conditioner from the home and put it in the trunk of a vehicle. Moments later, officers located a 1990 Lincoln Town Car -- with an air conditioner in the trunk -- leaving the scene. They attempted to stop the vehicle, and the three men inside took off on foot. After a brief foot chase, patrolmen caught all three and took them into custody. They're identified as 27-yearold Rokimo White, 48-year-old Anthony Johnson, and 24-year-old Jeranckie Lane. They each face one count of simple burglary. Detectives are working to determine if the men are responsible for other similar crimes.
