Shreveport K-9 “Barry” Assists in Big Drug Bust
On January 9th, 2022, around 5:00 p.m., Shreveport Police patrol officers attempted to conduct a traffic stop at Greenwood Road and Broadway Avenue. The vehicle refused to stop and led patrol officers on a chase that ended in the 2900 block of Milton when the vehicle crashed into a fire hydrant.
Upon crashing, four armed suspects fled from the vehicle. Three of the suspects were apprehended hiding under a residence in the 2900 block of Hardy Street with the assistance of K-9 “Barry.” One of the suspects received medical attention for minor injuries sustained during capture.
A fourth suspect was captured in the 2900 block of Penick Street where he forcibly entered a residence without consent while trying to escape from officers.
Shreveport Police arrested three adult males and one juvenile related to this incident.
Kevin Carr (6-25-02) was charged with one count of Home Invasion, one count of Aggravated Battery, one count of Illegal possession of Stolen Things, one count of Possession of Schedule IV and Schedule II, one count of Possession of Cocaine with intent to distribute, one count of Resisting an Officer, and one count of Felony Theft.
Ishmael Edwards (9-6-02) was charged with one count of Possession of Cocaine with intent to distribute, one count of Resisting an Officer, and Aggravated Flight from an Officer.
Charzavien Thomas (8-27-01) was charged with one count of Resisting an Officer and one count of Illegal possession of Stolen Things.
Photos of Carr and Edwards will be attached. We would like to thank K-9 “Barry” and all officers involved for their hard work and heroic action in bringing those to justice that seek to harm our community.
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.
