Shreveport man arrested for Gladney Street theft

dkelseyDuring the season of giving, at least one Shreveport man may have decided it was also the season of taking when he allegedly stole Christmas gifts and other items from a Minden residence.

Dylan Andrew Kelsey, 17, of the 3100 block of Knight Street, Shreveport, was arrested for felony theft three days after a party where a number of items disappeared.

Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper said two days before Christmas, Kelsey reportedly attended a party at a Gladney Street residence with a number of other young persons.

"At some point and time, people started going to sleep, and afterward Kelsey assisted in the theft of several Christmas gifts, four TVs and a 38 caliber revolver," Cropper said. "When Kelsey was arrested, he admitted the items that were stolen were dropped off at a residence in Shreveport. Some were supposed to be taken to Dallas."

Cropper said Det. Keith King, Jr., arrested Kelsey for felony theft over $500 and expects to make another arrest in the case.

Kelsey was booked at the Minden Police Department and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
