Shreveport Police investigators have arrested a man wanted by authorities in another state who may have committed crimes locally.  


Just before 9:00 p.m. on January 10, 2014, Shreveport Police detectives booked 73 year old Richard Seaton Sr. of the 700 block of Rutherford Street, into the Shreveport City Jail following his arrest on an outstanding warrant procured  by investigators with the Johnson County Sheriff's Office in Warrensburg, Missouri.  The warrant, which charges Seaton with a number of sexual related crimes, was executed Friday evening after Shreveport Police detectives were contacted by Johnson County Sheriff's Office officials advising them of the warrant's existence.  Seaton was taken into custody at his Rutherford Street address without incident.

Richard Seaton Sr. is the father of imprisoned former assistant chief administrative officer Rick Seaton Jr. He was convicted in January 2012 on one count of abuse of office and one count of forcible rape. He's sentenced to 18 years in prison

An ongoing investigation conducted by Shreveport Police detectives remains underway to determine wether or not Seaton has potentially victimized other persons in or around the local area.  Authorities are urging anyone who may have information concerning potential victims of Seaton to contact Shreveport Police Sex Crimes detectives at (318) 673-6955, Crime Stoppers at (318) 673-7373 or visit their website at
