Robbery Probe Widens; Two More Suspects Sought
Shreveport police have identified two more people wanted in a string of recent robberies, on top of the three arrested yesterday. Arrest warrants have been issued for 19-year-old Myles Smith and 21-year-old James Tyson — both of Shreveport. They’re wanted, specifically, for the November 9th robbery at the Break N Run bar in the 9400 block of Mansfield Road. But police say they’ve gathered enough evidence to tie them in with the trio arrested yesterday and suspected in as many as a dozen robberies in recent weeks. Bond for Smith and Tyson has been fixed at $500-thousand each.
Bossier City police, in the meantime, have also tied all five suspects to several recent robberies. They’ve obtained arrest warrants charging Myles Robinson, Halston Smith, and Tremario Washington — the trio arrested yesterday in Shreveport — with the September robbery of What’s on Tap on Airline Drive and the robbery earlier this month of the Applebee’s, also on Airline. They’ve also secured arrest warrants for Smith and Tyson in connection with the Applebee’s holdup and the robbery of an employee at Trejos Restaurant on Airline Drive back in October. The Bossier City warrants set bond at $250-thousand each.
