A DNA match leads to an arrest and wraps up multiple business burglaries in southeast Shreveport over the past few months. In late January, several businesses along the Line Avenue corridor were either broken into or damaged. DNA evidence found at the scene of one of those was sent to the North Louisiana Crime Lab for analysis, and has been matched to 47-year-old Kevin Cotton.

Detectives learned that Cotton had been arrested on unrelated charges back on February 8th, and the burglaries abruptly stopped. Investigators linked Cotton to a home on Merrick Street, where they located items inside that were taken in numerous burglaries in the area, including the ones along Line Avenue. They also found over 100 stolen credit cards.

Cotton was already locked up at Caddo Correctional Center, and is now charged with four counts of simple burglary. Detectives suspect he could be responsible for more. Their investigation continues.
