Shreveport man behind bars for vehicle theft, operating chop shop

SHREVEPORT, La. - A Shreveport man is facing charges for possessing stolen vehicles and operating a chop shop.  

In Oct. 2016, the LSP Insurance Fraud/Auto Theft Unit initiated an investigation after allegations were made that 31-year-old Brandon Glover was operating a chop shop in the Shreveport area.  

On Wednesday, Feb. 1 troopers discovered that Glover was in possession of a stolen 2016 Jeep Cherokee and a stolen 2009 Nissan Maxima.  Both vehicles were stolen from the Garland, TX area.

After Troopers confirmed that the vehicles were stolen, they went to Glover’s body shop and attempted to contact him.  

As they arrived, Troopers saw Glover leaving his shop in the Jeep Cherokee that had previously been reported stolen.  

Troopers attempted to conduct a traffic stop but Glover refused to stop.  After a short pursuit Glover abandoned the vehicle behind a home and tried to run away but troopers were able to take him into custody without incident.

Glover was transported to the Caddo Correctional Center and booked on the following charges: Vehicle Theft, Illegal Possession of Stolen Things, Resisting Arrest by Flight, Reckless Operation, Switched License Plate, and Driving Under Suspension.

The public plays an integral role in identifying suspects accused of these crimes and is strongly urged to report criminal or suspicious activity.
