Crowley Police Chief K.P. Gibson says it was an officer paying close attention to details in a case that led to the arrest of a suspect for an attempted burglary in the city Thursday morning.

Chief Gibson says,


“Our officers responded to an alarm activation in the 900 block of South Parkerson Ave. As the officers arrived, they observed that the door to the business had been damaged, thus having attempted entry. As officers checked the building, they observed a white male subject walking from the area. The subject was stopped and determined to have outstanding warrants.”

Officers were able to see video provided by the store owner.  They knew then the same person they had detained was the person they wanted for the attempted burglary.

Officers continued to search the area, and they found a bag the suspect had on him that included his burglary tools.

Police arrested 24-year-old Jordan Morgan of Crowley for attempted burglary and having an outstanding warrant.

Chief Gibson adds,


“Our officers did an outstanding job by observing and detaining a potential suspect, which they were able to link to the crime. I appreciate their hard work and it should be recognized.”
