Suspect charged with entering multiple homes in Alexandria without permission
ALEXANDRIA, La. (APD) - On April 15, around 6:30 p.m., APD officers responded to the area of Heyman Lane, near Nachman School, to a report of a suspicious person.
A resident in the area had reported that a male suspect had knocked on the door and claimed to have been bitten by a dog. The male then left the house and went in an unknown direction.
Officers patrolled the area looking for the suspect. Shortly after, a second complaint was reported from a house on Tanglewood Drive, near Heyman Lane. It was reported at this residence that a male suspect had knocked on the door, and when the residents answered, the male walked into the house without permission. The residents reported they did not know the male, nor did he have permission to enter their home.
Shortly after, while officers continued to look for the subject, one officer on Tanglewood Drive was approached by a 15-year-old who said an unidentified male was in his house. Officers ran to the house and located the suspect, identified as Beau Taylor, hiding in the backyard. Officers learned that Taylor had entered this house by crawling through a dog door, and then walked through the house mumbling to himself. Taylor had reportedly used drugs earlier and felt that someone was following him.
Taylor was charged with two counts of unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling, and an outstanding warrant for contempt of court. He was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center.
