By Bonnie Culverhouse

Sibley Police, with the help of Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies, have arrested a juvenile and a south Webster man for breaking into vehicles of Sibley residents.

Percy Deshun Robinson, 19, of the 100 block of SE Claiborne, Sibley, and an unidentified 15-year-old are charged with 4 counts of simple burglary, theft of a firearm.

Sibley Mayor Jimmy Williams said around 4 a.m. Tuesday, the two were caught on camera attempting to break into cars.

“The person who saw them on their home security system, called for police and they got here fast,” Williams said. “The deputies were quick, too.”

Williams said a chase ensued across his backyard before officers caught and arrested the two in the front yard of a neighbor.

According to the arrest report, officers located a handgun in Robinson’s jacket pocket. Robinson reportedly admitted the gun was not his and then gave officers the juvenile’s name and address.

“The teen-ager had a rap sheet,” Williams said. “And he’d just gotten out of jail … he was still wearing an ankle bracelet.

“This was great work by the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office and Sibley PD,” he added.
