Bossier Parish, LA – According to the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, investigators received a tip from the security team of the St. Francis Cabrini Hospital of Alexandria concerning an abandoned vehicle in the parking lot.

Alexandria Police Department officers reportedly discovered that the suspect’s vehicle displayed a stolen license plate.

Investigation revealed that the vehicle contained all of the guns reported stolen from the November 14, 2021 burglary of the Guns-N-Ammo Store in Benton.

Sheriff Whittington released the following statement:

“We are confident with our arrests in that case but were troubled that we could not locate the stolen weapons. We are thankful for the good work of the hospital security team in reporting this vehicle and the follow-up work done by the Alexandria Police Department detectives.”

Both suspects, Silah Reed and Jessica Moore, are now facing charges in connection with the Nov. 2021 burglary of a local gun store.

Both suspects are currently housed at the Bossier Parish Jail and each has a $320,000 bond.

This is a developing story and it will be updated as new information become available.
