Shreveport Man Wanted for Stealing Shingles
Bossier Parish sheriff’s deputies are looking for a Shreveport man who’s wanted in connection with the theft of about $2800 worth of shingles from a Benton construction site.
25-year-old Enrique “Rickey” Palmer is wanted for stealing one-and-a-half pallets of shingles from a home under construction in the 1400 block of Suwannee Lane in the Woodlake Ridge subdivision. Two others believed involved in the theft, and also from Shreveport, have already been taken into custody.
The theft was discovered just before midnight on July 30th when a patrol deputy noticed Lynesha McCall acting suspiciously in the neighborhood. Turns out, she was was acting as a lookout for Palmer and Paul Thompson, who were loading bundles of shingles into a U-Haul truck. McCall and Thompson were arrested on the scene but Palmer got away and remains on the loose.
Deputies believe the trio may have been involved in similar thefts in Bossier and Caddo Parishes. They’re asking anyone who might know where Palmer is or know anything about other similar thefts to contact Bossier Crime Stoppers at 318-424-4100 or the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office at 318-965-2203.
