A Deridder man is in a Webster Parish jail after breaking into a Doyline residence.
Waylon Todd Haymon, 39, of the 100 block of Todd Haymon Rd., Deridder, is charged with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling and possession of stolen things.
Webster Parish Sheriff Jason Parker said deputies Jacob Winiarski and Donald Ferguson were dispatched to a location on Horseshoe Loop early Tuesday afternoon in reference to an active break-in.
“Dispatch advised Haymon fled the scene in a black Toyota Tacoma,” Parker said. “When they arrived, deputies were unable initially to locate the vehicle, but found it east of the complainant’s residence.”
The complainant told deputies that Haymon no longer lived at the residence.
“She said she’d changed the front door lock password, but he was still able to get in,” said the sheriff. “When he came into the house, he tried to take her phone and she barricaded herself in the back bedroom.”
Once deputies located the empty vehicle, the sheriff said they noticed the hood was still hot, as if it was driven recently.
“They ran the license plate and dispatch advised it had switched tags,” Parker said. “They ran the vehicle identification number and learned the vehicle was stolen.”
Haymon was contacted by the complainant and reportedly convinced to return to the residence to speak with deputies.
“Deputies arrested Haymon and when they tried to question him, all he would say was that ‘it’s irrelevant,’” Parker said. “Otherwise, he wouldn’t answer any questions.”
Haymon was booked into Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
