Shreveport K9 “Barry” Captures Catalytic Converter Thief
On March 20th, 2023, around midnight Shreveport Police patrol officers were called to an alarm call in the 8770 block of Business Park Drive. While enroute officers were informed that the alarm company could see individuals attempting to steal catalytic converters from a vehicle parked at this location.
One of the suspects was immediately captured on the Officer’s arrival. Shreveport Police K-9 “Barry” was deployed to locate the second suspect. After several minutes of searching the parking lot between several rows of cars, K9 Barry located Kevin McKeavor (9/19/01) hiding inside a box truck.
Mckeavor was arrested for one count of Felony Theft and treated for minor injuries. The second suspect has not been identified at this time.
