Caddo Sheriff’s deputies arrested a Shreveport man for his involvement in a three-month property crime spree in north Caddo Parish, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.

David Allen Shelton, 28, of the 6400 block of Hwy. 1, was arrested in Oil City on November 11, on a warrant obtained by Caddo Detective Nathan Everett. Shelton was located at a family member’s house by Cpl. James Norwood of the Patrol Division and was taken into custody.

Shelton was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center for three counts of Theft, two counts of Unauthorized Use of a Moveable, two counts of Forgery, and one count each of Illegal Possession of Stolen Things, Possession of Schedule II (methamphetamine), Simple Criminal Property Damage, Unauthorized Entry into a Place of Business, Unauthorized Entry of an Inhabited Dwelling, Simple Burglary, Motor Vehicle Theft, and Parole Violation.

He is accused of stealing two four wheelers – one on Roy Road and one on Hwy. 169 - and a vehicle from the KCS railway yard on North Lakeshore. At the time of his arrest, he was driving a vehicle stolen in Gilmer, Texas, and was in possession of a small amount of methamphetamine.

During the investigation by Everett and Det. Dennis Williams, it was learned that Shelton also stole items from a residential storage shed in the 100 block of Main Street in Oil City and burglarized a business on Hwy. 173 in Blanchard.

So far, Caddo detectives have recovered $51,000 in stolen property.
