Firearm stolen in armed robbery

By Bonnie Culverhouse

An armed robbery that included a firearm as the stolen object landed a Minden man in jail.

Terrel Smith, 24, of the 100 block of Squire Street, was arrested by Minden Police on New Year’s Eve.

Chief Steve Cropper said Ofc. Anthony Miller, along with Sgt. Donald Brice and Lt. Chris McClaran, were dispatched to the scene when the victim called police.

“Terrel is accused of pointing a firearm at another man on Moore Street the evening before,” Cropper said. “He then took a firearm from the victim at gunpoint.”

Cropper said the victim called after he observed the suspect passing his house in a tan Lincoln Town Car early the following morning.

“Officers got out with the Lincoln Town Car at a 500 block of Midland Street residence,” said the chief. “Smith was identified and taken into custody without incident.”

Smith was booked at Minden PD and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
