Demarcus Cooley/SPD

Two burglars were caught in the act...and now they're in jail. Witnesses called police and said they saw two suspicious males lurking around a home in the 700 block of Long Bayou Lane. When officers arrived, they found a rear door of the home had been pried open and they heard movement inside. They called for back-up and a K-9 unit. Once the burglars realized they'd been caught, they tried to escape, but seeing additional police and the dog were enough for them to surrender peacefully. 18-year-old Ricky Mash and 20-year-old Demarcus Cooley were both booked into the Shreveport City Jail on burglary of an inhabited dwelling charges.
