Bossier Parish Sheriff's Detectives believe they've solved a series of recent burglaries in the southern part of the parish with two arrests.

This afternoon, detectives arrested 38-year-old Raymond Myers and 18-year-old Tyler Still who live in the 500 block of Camp Bistineau in Doyline.  Both were booked into the Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center in Webster Parish on charges of illegal possession of stolen things  Myers also faces a charge of felony theft.  Both men are now awaiting extradition to Bossier Parish.

Bossier Parish detectives worked together with the Webster Parish Sheriff's Office to identify the pair as being responsible for at least five burglaries in southern Bossier Parish in December and January.  They're believed to have hit at least one residence as well as businesses and storage facilities.  Detectives say they've recovered thousands of dollars worth of equipment and tools as well as a stolen trailer from the men's Doyline residence.

Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington says he's extremely proud of the cooperation between his detectives and the Webster Parish Sheriff's Office.  As he puts it, "It's solid detective work, tracking down every lead and working across parish lines."  He goes on to say, "Now we are in the process of returning the stolen items to their owners -- cases solved!"
