Minden man jailed for Harley theft

A MInden man is behind bars, accused of stealing a motorcycle, among other things, from a residence on Dorcheat Road.
Cameron Thomas, 27, of Hwy. 371 in Minden was in Minden Police custody Sunday for an unrelated incident when a warrant search turned up the motorcycle theft, according to booking reports.

“It was found that Cameron has two active warrants through the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office,” the report said.

“Also, Cameron was seen taking a motorcycle (2002 Harley Davidson) that belongs to a Dewayne Martin by his wife.”

Martin told authorities that Thomas had never been given permission to be on the motorcycle, and subsequently filed charges.

WPSO issued a “be on the lookout” for the motorcycle Saturday, as it was last seen traveling north on Dorcheat Road.

Thomas was mirandized, transported to the Minden Police Department to be processed on the Minden charges. He was then transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center to be booked on the WPSO charges.

At the time of his booking, Thomas was found to be in possession of Martin’s credit cards, the report said.

Thomas was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle (2 counts), theft of a motor vehicle, theft, simple criminal damage to property, unauthorized removal of a vehicle, unauthorized entry of a business, simple criminal damage to property, careless operation, failure to report to court, and contempt of court (2 counts).
