SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) – Shreveport police found an on-the-run burglary suspect hiding in a neighbor’s dryer Friday morning.

On June 14 at 5:10 a.m., the Shreveport Police Department (SPD) responded to a shots fired report on W Canal Street in the Sunset Acres neighborhood.

When SPD officers got there, they found a homeowner had reportedly fired shots at a man who allegedly was trying to steal something from her yard.

“He went to the lady across the street yard to get his backpack he had stashed over there and rode over there to get the equipment. I ran up on him and said, ‘Where my s*** at?’ He dropped his bike and I fired my arm,” said Rochelle Baylor, the homeowner.

Baylor says she shot at the burglar about five or six times.

The suspect had called his parents to come get him while he was on the run, having assumed he was shot.

“The owner took shots at the suspect. He ended up calling his mom to come get him so we ended up chasing him for miles,” said Lt. Shawn Hurd with SPD.

SPD chased the man for hours before finding him hiding inside an unaware neighbor’s dryer.

“I was in there reading my Bible and seen these police come up the driveway and went in the back,” said James Wall, the man whose dryer the suspect was found hiding inside. “We have some problems like this every once and a while, but none like this. It was like the whole police force showed up.”

Pity he didn’t try the chest freezer. Thanks again Gun Bunny.

Hung out to dry.
Pretty in pink.


His criminal career took a tumble. And Ms Thang needs some range time.

Pretty in pink.” (upbeat music) “Baby got her Blue Jeans on…” Smoldering hot! The rifle’s cute, too.

Nothing gooderer than a Professional Pig Sticker. I want one of them, too.

That’s either a small dude, or a large dryer. He should have hung out on the clothes line and gotten drunk…..three sheets to the wind.


I wonder how many pawn shops there are in Shreveport.


Homeowner needs range time, and possibly a shotgun plus range time.

Of course, if the perp can hide in a dryer, he may be a small target. Small moving targets are harder with a pistol. Clay “rabbits” and shotgun would be good preparation.


I have one of those knives. I love it!


That is a very pretty woman holding an AR 15 with pink furniture.
While wearing a pink shirt.
It took the gun makers many years to figure out that if they wanted to sell guns to the 50% of the population that is female, they need some bling on their product.
