Four men who were planning to break into a home in Keithville are caught when the female resident shows up with a gun.

Sheriff Steve Prator says the incident happened just before 10 a.m., when deputies got a call from the 11000 of Peggy Lane in Keithville regarding a burglary in progress. The homeowner told deputies several men were at her front door dressed in hoods and carrying backpacks. When she met them at the door with a handgun the suspects fled in an SUV that was parked in the bushes.

The sheriffs office got another call from an alert neighbor who said they witnessed the hooded suspects on the porch of the home and spotted another man hiding in some bushes.

Caddo Sheriff’s Lt. Jackie Lewis spotted the suspects’ vehicle and stopped it in the 3200 block of Colquitt Road. The vehicle contained several backpacks, masks, a large knife, and marijuana.

Deputies arrested 20-year-old  Jacorey Fuller, 20-year-old Andre Ealy, 20-year-old Tristen Bradley, and 24-year-old Micah Eugene have each been charged with simple burglary, possession of marijuana and possession of burglary tools.
