Minden Man Who Wouldn’t Take “No” For An Answer is Spending Time at Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Rankin Douglas Thomas, 39, formerly of the 200 block of West Union, Minden, was arrested for felony home invasion, felony unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling and felony domestic abuse with child endangerment.

Minden Police Chief Steve Cropper said Thomas made unauthorized entry twice into a West Union residence where his ex-girlfriend and 2-year-old son live.

“The first time was at 6 a.m.,” Cropper said. “Thomas grabbed a diaper bag from the female and shoved her to the ground in the presence of their son.”

According to reports, Thomas uses Methamphetamine and is currently homeless, having been evicted from the address.

“Later in the day, Thomas returned to the address, and the female denied entry,” Cropper said. “She exited the shower and observed Thomas in the residence and acting ‘paranoid,’ claiming another man was in the residence.”

When police arrived, Thomas ran from officers but was reportedly apprehended and taken to Minden Police Department for booking.
