BUNKIE, La. (KALB) - A suspect is in custody after barricading from police on S Louisiana Avenue in Bunkie.

The Bunkie Police Department and the Avoyelles Parish Sheriff’s Office surrounded a home around 3:30 p.m. and actively negotiated with a suspect, trying to get them to surrender. Around 6:45 p.m., police breached the home and found evidence that the suspect was hiding in the attic. Minutes later, the suspect jumped through the porch ceiling in the last chance effort to escape - but was caught and taken into custody.

After the standoff, APSO identified the suspect as Shedrick L. Wiley III. Police said Wiley was attempting to steal a catalytic converter from a vehicle at a residence outside of Bunkie when the homeowner chased Wiley to the home on S Louisiana Ave. KALB is waiting for an update from the police as to what charges Wiley faces.

Wiley has a history of property theft and damage and was arrested for a similar incident in 2018.

UPDATE: One suspect is in custody.
