A Minden man incarcerated at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center found himself under arrest again after Minden detectives discovered he’d reportedly stolen someone’s identity.
Shannon D. Strother, 47, of the 1700 block of Highway 79, was arrested Thursday, Oct. 8, by the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office for principal to identity theft. Bond was set at $50,000.
Strother was transported to the Minden Police Department on the above charge. According to reports, Strother and his current wife went to Carter Federal Credit Union and tried to get a vehicle loan in Strother’s ex-wife’s name using her personal information in March.
On April 22, Strother was arrested and charged with possession of Schedule I CDS (marijuana), possession of Schedule II CDS (methamphetamines), possession of drug paraphernalia, warrant for burglary and probation and parole violation. He remained in Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center on a probation and parole hold.
Strother was reportedly one of two involved in the alleged burglary of a shop on Sand Plant Road in Dubberly reported in February. Jimmy Nutt, the other party reportedly involved, admitted to authorities that he and Strother burglarized the shop and took a welding machine and some tools, Webster Parish Sheriff’s detectives said at the time of his arrest.
When detectives went to Strother’s Highway 79 residence, he also reportedly admitted to being a part of the burglary. One of the items stolen was on the front porch, according to reports.
Shannon Strother is set for status conference on racketeering charges Monday, Oct. 19.
