Shreveport Police detectives are working to identify and apprehend a suspect accused of robbing a local car wash in west Shreveport last week.

On February 3, 2017, Shreveport Police patrol officers were called to the Zips carwash located in the 6800 block of Pines Road relative to a suspect who entered the business and forced employees there to hand over money.
