Officers gave chase to the suspects and called for the assistance of Shreveport Police K-9 “Diesel.” Diesel was able to assist in locating all three suspects. Two of the suspects were determined to be juveniles (17 years of age and 16 years of age). The driver was identified as Javeyun James (5-24-05).

James was charged with one count of Resisting, one count of Illegal Possession of a Stolen thing, one count of Aggravated Obstruction of a Highway, and one count of Aggravated Flight.

We want to thank “Diesel” for his assistance, bravery, and hard work.

Due to the laws issued in reference to mugshot releases in the state of Louisiana, we are required to remind that all suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
