SPD Arrests Minden Man for Sex Crimes Against Juvenile
A Minden man is behind bars following an ongoing investigation into allegations of sex crimes against a juvenile.
Shreveport Sex Crimes Detectives arrested 68-year-old Celodis Bell, Sr., this afternoon after he was named a suspect. Detectives say Bell had repeated contact with a 15-year-old, inappropriately touching the victim and asking for sexual favors.
It's also alleged that Bell was involved in electronic communication with the victim, again requesting the teen engage in sex acts with him.
Bell was interviewed by detectives, then booked into the Shreveport City Jail on charges of molesting a juvenile, indecent behavior with a juvenile and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Investigators are concerned there may be other victims who haven't come forward yet. Anyone with information that can help is asked to call police at 318-673-6955.
