DNA Evidence Helps Shreveport Detectives Crack Cold Case

DNA evidence collected at the scene of a business burglary more than three years ago has helped Shreveport detectives make an arrest in the case.

Back on February 26, 2011, Shreveport police were called to the scene of a business burglary in the 500 block of Anderson Avenue.  When they got there, officers were told that somebody had broken into the Tank Head Fight Club by breaking out a window and there were blood droppings located throughout the business.

Samples of that blood were collected at the scene and sent to the North Louisiana Crime Lab for analysis. However, because of a backlog of cases, it’s taken awhile to analyze those samples.  Now that they’ve been analyzed, they’ve pointed the finger to 26-year-old Tyler Stromberg of Minden.  That enabled detectives to secure a warrant for his arrest.

Stromberg was already in custody in another jurisdiction on unrelated charges. Nonetheless, detectives were able to charge him with a single count of unauthorized entry of a place of business.  He has since been arrested on that warrant and booked into Caddo Correctional Center with his bond set at $10,000.

This is the second cold case cracked this week because of DNA evidence.  Detectives were also able to arrest a man who’s believed to have been involved in a robbery/vehicle theft that occurred about a year ago in the 200 block of Spring Street downtown because of DNA evidence that linked him to that crime.
