Deputies arrest accused squatters


DOYLINE — A Doyline couple is facing multiple charges after reportedly living in a home without the owner’s permission.

Thursday, the owner of a home in the 100 block of Murphy Street in Doyline reported an unidentified male and female living in the home without permission.

Deputies John Lewis and Daniel White along, with Capt. Robert Hayden, went to the home and met with the individuals identified as 46-year-old Corey Ray and 36-year-old Annie Hilner. The couple told deputies someone gave them permission to be there, but later told deputies they did not have permission.

While talking with the pair, deputies saw a 12-gauge shotgun and a 0.223 caliber rifle in the front seat of a Jeep parked next to the home, according to the arrest affidavit.

Deputies learned both had been convicted of felonies after checking their criminal history.

After being taken into custody, the couple reportedly told deputies they owned the Jeep, but the firearms were not theirs.

The homeowner allowed deputies to search the home, according to reports.

Two milk crates were also inside the home. One contained power tools and electronics suspected to be stolen. The second crate was reportedly full of ammunition for all types of guns.

A white Ford Crown Victoria that had been reported stolen in Bossier City was at the home, the report said.

Ray reportedly admitted ownership of the suspected drugs, drug paraphernalia and Ford Crown Victoria to deputies.
