Doyline man nabbed on burglary charges

By Bonnie Culverhouse

Webster Parish Sheriff’s Criminal Investigation Division has arrested a south Webster Parish man on burglary charges.

Devin Lee Lucas, 30, of the 4900 block of Camp Joy, Doyline, is charged with simple burglary and illegal possession of stolen things.

Sheriff Jason Parker said Lt. T.D. Kemp Jr. and Sgt. Marvin Garrett studied video from a grocery store in south Bossier that revealed Lucas driving a white Ford F150.

“The vehicle pulled into the grocery store and Lucas picked up an accomplice after the second man hid a white Polaris SXS in the wooded area off a pipeline located near Hwy. 527,” Parker said.

The Sheriff said Lucas and Austin Tyler Davis of Elm Grove burglarized a residence on Harville Day Rd.

“Davis put everything he stole in a party barge and drove the boat to Lucas’ residence at Camp Joy,” Parker said. “Then he took the barge back to the first house, left it and stole the side by side. After he hid it in the woods, he called Lucas to come get him at the grocery store and that’s what our investigators caught on tape.”

Lucas was arrested at his Camp Joy residence. Davis is in a Shreveport jail on unrelated charges. According to investigators, Davis stole the side by side, two televisions, two chainsaws, a laser level, a rod and reel and Garmin live scope. Some items have been recovered.

“Lucas is a convicted felon from when we arrested him several years ago for a rash of burglaries in Heflin,” said the sheriff. “Davis is also prohibited from possessing a firearm.”

Davis will be released to WPSO from Shreveport’s custody “when his issues are resolved.”
