Search for Burglary Suspect Leads to Arrest

OPSO Investigators have arrested a suspect in the investigation of several residential and camp burglaries reported in August 2018.  The burglaries occurred in the Jones Road area of western Ouachita Parish.

During the course of the investigation, Cassidy Mckoin was identified as the suspect in the surveillance photos and a warrant was issued for him on multiple counts of Burglary. He apparently fled Ouachita Parish after committing the burglaries. In their continued search for him, Investigators learned he was now living in the Abilene, TX area. The Abilene Police Department was notified and subsequently located Mckoin.  He was arrested on the OPSO warrant and is in custody in Abilene, pending extradition proceedings back to Ouachita Parish on the charges.
