Suspect caught in the act
The Ruston Police Department reportedly caught a would-be burglar in the act with the help of a tip from a neighbor at approximately 6:30 a.m. Feb. 20.
“We believe he stood on a trash can and broke out a window. The break alerted the neighbor who then called us,” Captain Tim Parker with RPD said. “When the police narrowed down the house, there was someone moving in the house with a flashlight so we knew there was an active burglary in progress.”
