Pair arrested, accused of trying to burglarize truck


A Webster Parish couple was arrested last week after deputies observed them taking items from a parked vehicle.

James R. Roton, 42, of the 600 block of Doc Steed Road in Minden, was charged with simple burglary. Bond was set at $50,000.

Kelly D. Ely, 38, of the 1700 block of Dorcheat Road in Minden, was charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a Schedule I CDS and simple burglary. Bond was set at $55,700.

Webster Parish Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Bobby Igo Jr. says an off-duty deputy noticed the two apparently trying to break into the vehicle.
“With that, some deputies were dispatched to the scene where they found some narcotics,” he said.

Reports did not indicate what type of narcotics were found, but did report both Ely and Roton were seen taking items from the vehicle. A search of
Ely’s vehicle revealed the narcotics and the drug paraphernalia.

Lt. Ken Sivils was the arresting officer with the assistance of Deputy Jesse Lee.

Both were placed under arrest and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
