A Shreveport man lands in the Red River Parish Jail after cleanup duties turn to a clean out at a Coushatta store. Management at Rivertown Market had noticed that inventory of cigarettes and other tobacco products had been off over the past few weeks.
They reviewed security footage and were surprised to see someone helping them self to carton after carton of cigarettes. The security video showed a man filled his backpack with smokes.
Store officials say the thefts occurred after hours, at times when the floor cleaning crew was at work in the store. The Sheriff’s Department was called and the security video turned over.
The weekly arrest report from the parish jail includes the arrest of Khristopher Vanroosendaal at 7:09 pm on August 23rd. Vanroosendaal is charged with theft over $750 but less than $5,000. Bond has not been set at last check.
Sheriffs Department Public Information Officer Troy Murray said, “I can confirm the theft was from Rivertown Market. The stolen items were tobacco products and ‘other merchandise’.”
