RPSO: Arrest Made in Burglary In Progress

Posted: Updated:

PINEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5) -- On June 22nd, 2014, at approximately 6:56 pm, deputies responded to the 400 block of Big Lake Road in reference to a burglary in progress. Upon arrival, deputies made contact with the complainant who advised that a suspect, identified as James Hooper, 17 of Vidor, TX, had allegedly broken into a residence that they were the caretaker of. 

The complainant knew there was not supposed to be anyone at the residence and when deputies checked the residence with a canine, they located a broken window and other evidence that the residence had been broken into. Deputies found evidence that the suspect had, in fact, been in the residence. 

Deputies also learned Hooper had allegedly stolen a 2008 Toyota Corolla in Texas earlier that day, but were unable to locate Hooper or the vehicle. 

At approximately 9:21 pm, Deputies received another report that Hooper had returned to the residence. Supervisors and deputies who had stayed in the area responded to the scene within 2 minutes and caught Hooper inside the residence. 

Deputies also located the stolen vehicle, which was returned to the owner. Another person was located with Hooper but had no involvement in the burglary. 

Hooper was placed under arrest and transported to the Rapides Parish Detention Center where he was booked for Criminal Damage less than $500, Simple Burglary and Possession of a Stolen Vehicle. 

Hooper remains in the Detention Center on a $8,750 bond.

“It is so important for the public to be our eyes and ears in the community. When you see something suspicious, especially when it comes to burglaries, call us and we will check it out” said Sheriff William Earl Hilton. “If you see something, say something. The public's involvement helps us solve crimes.”
