An alleged home invader was picked up in Shreveport Tuesday, after Shreveport Police apprehended her on three warrants.
Linda Ann Taylor, 51, no address given, was charged with home invasion, simple burglary and simple criminal damage to property. Bonds totaled $30,500.
Maj. Dustin Reynolds says Taylor was picked up on the warrants issued April 9 stemming from an incident that occurred during the first week of April.
On April 1, he says, Taylor allegedly went to a home on Highway 80 and asked the resident of the home for money. When the resident said no, she reportedly pushed her way in.
“The victim is an elderly woman,” Reynolds said. “Often times, as in these types of cases, the victims are elderly and are reluctant to report it. Because of this victim’s quick action, it may have prevented the suspect from committing another crime.”
The victim gave her a little bit of money and some food and Taylor left.
On April 6, according to reports, the same victim was across the street at a neighbor’s and noticed a truck parked at her residence. She sent her grandson to the house to see who it was, and the grandson reportedly witnessed Taylor going through his grandmother’s purse. It is not known if she took anything from the purse, but she exited the home, got in her truck and tore up the yard going around a vehicle parked in the driveway, Reynolds says.
Taylor was brought back to Webster Parish where she was booked into Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center on the above charges.
