A homeowner returned home on Friday evening to find a burglar inside and called police.

The Morehouse Parish Sheriff's Office received a call on April 6 at approximately 5 p.m. in reference to a strange truck parked in the driveway of 11942 Cornbread Rd.

Sheriff Mike Tubbs said the homeowner had returned home and seen the truck in her driveway and called police.

"The storage building also appeared to have been broken into, and the homeowner felt like someone was still inside the residence," he said.

Officers arrived and observed that the door to the storage building was cracked and a gun magazine was lying on the ground. A bag was sitting by the door that had apparently been gone through.

Officers entered the residence and found Jordan Bustion, 25, sitting in the living room.

Tubbs said Bustion appeared to be under the influence of drugs at the time of the arrest.

The affidavit stated that Bustion told officers that he was at the residence waiting on his girlfriend to come home, and she had told him to go inside and wait for her to arrive. Officers spoke to the girlfriend and she stated that she did not tell him to meet her in the house.

Inside the residence the officers also noticed the gun safe was opened and a gun was missing. The gun was located sitting in a chair. Bustion admitted to opening the safe and getting the gun out. There were other items in the residence that had been gone through and moved around. Bustion was arrested and charged with aggravated burglary of an inhabited dwelling and simple burglary. He is being held without bond at the Morehouse Parish Jail.

 

Tubbs said there is warrant for him in Arkansas concerning a previous burglary.
