A local man has been arrested by Shreveport Police detectives after fingerprints recovered at the scene of a residential burglary tied him to the crime. 

 

At approximately 1:25 p.m. on June 20, 2011, Shreveport Police patrol officers responded to a home in the 3000 block of Burson Drive relative to a burglary. Upon arrival, officers contacted the victim and learned that an unknown suspect or suspects had apparently entered the house and stolen several video game consoles as well as controllers and games. There was no forced entry and the victim believed the culprit must have used a key she kept under the welcome mat to gain access. Investigating officers were able to recover latent fingerprints from the scene of the crime and those prints were in turn submitted to the department’s Crime Scene Unit for comparison.  

Crime scene investigators were able to match a palm print recovered from the crime scene to 22 year old Matthew Moses. Based on that evidence and other information gathered during the course of their inquiry, detectives took Moses into custody yesterday without incident at a home in the 6800 block of West 70th Street. Matthew Moses, of the 3000 block of Burson Drive in Shreveport, was subsequently booked into the Shreveport City Jail on one count each of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, illegal possession of stolen things, and theft. Moses also has a warrant outstanding for his arrest through the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office charging him with theft.
