BOSSIER PARISH, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A Doyline man is behind bars after deputies say they found a stolen gas can, a rifle, and a meth syringe inside of his car during a traffic stop early Tuesday morning.

According to the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, a caller reported seeing a man steal a gas can from a neighbor’s porch Thursday morning before taking off in a white Kia Sorrento. The caller followed the car until deputies caught up and pulled it over. Deputies say they found 30-year-old James M. Hillman at the wheel and discovered a red, five-gallon gas-filled can in his back seat. BPSO says Hillman admitted to deputies that he stole the gas can from a residence.

Authorities say they also found a rifle in the front seat and a syringe with meth in the back of the car. According to BPSO, Hilman also has an active warrant through Webster Parish.

Hillman is charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance, possession of schedule II (Methamphetamine), criminal trespass, misdemeanor theft (gas can and gas about $40), and a fugitive warrant.

He was taken to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility for booking and his bond is pending.
