One man is cleared while another man faces charges following the emergence of new evidence in connection with a residential burglary in south Shreveport earlier this month.


Colin Driscoll, 18, of the 10000 block of Belle Cour Way in Shreveport, was taken into custody and booked into the Shreveport City Jail.


On the morning of July 5, 2014, Shreveport Police were called to a home located in the 11000 block of Longfellow Circle relative to a burglary in progress.


During the initial investigation, 21-year-old Tylor Toney of the 3000 block of Nona Circle in Shreveport, was taken into police custody on an outstanding warrant for his arrest after information provided to detectives developed probable cause for his arrest.


However, on July 15, Shreveport Police investigators were presented with additional information regarding the burglary, suggesting another man was possibly responsible for the crime. 


Based on this new information, detectives discovered Driscoll was responsible for the burglaries on Longfellow Circle.


Driscoll was charged with two counts of Simple Burglary, and a single count of Attempted Simple burglary, Simple Burglary of an Inhabited Dwelling and Simple Criminal Property Damage for his alleged role in similar crimes. 


Today, police withdrew charges against Tylor Toney in connection with the Longfellow Circle burglaries, but he remains jailed for his alleged role in at least one other residential burglary committed in the Haven subdivision in south Shreveport.
