Four Arrested For Residential and Vehicle Burglaries In Bossier City
Some burglary suspects were caught in the act, and now several vehicle and residential break-ins are cleared with their arrests.
It started with Bossier City patrol officers chasing down a burglary suspect and ended with the arrests of that man and three others — who are all suspected of committing the burglaries over the past few weeks.
The first arrest came after officers were called to a burglary in progress at a house in the 2600 block of Oakley Street. They saw 18-year-old Damien Clark running out the back house and through part of the Greenacres neighborhood. Police chased him across Airline Drive, across some railroad tracks and down the 2900 block of Jetson Circle, where a police K-9 tracked him down to a backyard shed.
Two others, later identified as 18-year-old Breshawn Sweeney and a 15-year-old male, were found sleeping inside the same shed. Officers got them out, but Clark resisted and had to be forced out by the K-9. He was treated for a dog bite to the leg.
Back at the Oakley Street home, officers found 17-year-old Anfernee Stells hiding in a closet. He was arrested without incident. After a day-long investigation, all four were cnarged with numerous recent vehicle and residential burglaries. Detectives also recovered several pieces of property taken in the burglaries, including firearms and electronics.
Here are the charges each faces:
Damien Clark, nine counts of burglary and one of aggravated burglary
Anfernee Stells, one count of burglary
Breshawn Sweeney, seven counts of burglary, one each of illegal possession of stolen things and illegal possession of firearms
An unnamed 15-year-old male was also charged with six counts of burglary, one each of aggravated burglary and illegal possession of stolen things. He was booked into the Bossier Juvenile Detention Center. The other three were sent to the Bossier City Jail.
