Bossier Deputies Arrest Saloon Burglar and ATM Thief
Bossier sheriff's deputies have caught up with a man wanted for burglary, but the ATM he allegedly stole is still missing.
Back on August 7, someone broke into the Showdown Saloon in Princeton, disabled the surveillance cameras, damaged three video poker machines and stole money from two of them. He also attached a chain to the ATM and latched the chain to a vehicle to pull the machine out of the business.
Authorities did manage to find several angles of surveillance video that captured the suspect in action. He was wearing a Ghillie camoflage top, mask, sunglasses and gloves.
Detectives were able to use DNA evidence at the crime scene to locate 34-year-old David Keith of Haughton. A search warrant executed at his home, and deputies found part of the Ghillie suit used in the burglary, along with methamphetamine.
Keith is believed to be the primary suspect in the burglary, but detectives don't think he acted alone. Other arrests are pending as the investigation continues.
Keith was already incarcerated at the Bossier Maximum Security Facility after his arrest by the Haughton Police Department for an August 23 residential burglary in Haughton. Bossier detectives have added charges of simple burglary and meth possession.
Meantime, the ATM Keith allegedly stole has not been located yet. Anyone with information that can help is asked to contact Bossier Crime Stoppers at 318-424-4100.
