Kenner man arrested for multiple residential burglaries

 Kenner - An investigation into a Kenner man who was arrested Thursday, February 16, 2017, has resulted in him being charged with multiple counts of residential burglary. 

 On Thursday, February 16, 2017, at 10:55 a.m., the Kenner Police Department received a call from a resident who resided on Brittany Drive, in Kenner, reporting that a suspicious male, wearing a plaid jacket and dark pants was riding a bicycle, and appeared to be casing residences.  The caller reported seeing the male subject stop halfway up a driveway, then peer around to see if he was being watched.  The male at the time of the report then parked his bike between two residences on Brittany Drive and disappeared from sight.

 Officers investigating the complaint located a bicycle abandoned between two residences on Brittany Drive.   As officers began checking a neighboring residence, they observed the suspect, later identified as Advil Strowder, 47, who provided the home address of 3612 E. Loyola Drive, in Kenner, jump the neighboring fence.  Strowder immediately jumped onto his bicycle and lead officers on a short chase.  Strowder in his attempt to elude officers, abandoned his bicycle between two residences located in the 1300 block of Vintage Drive where he began jumping fences into the rear yards of Rue Grenoble and Rue Dijon where he was eventually captured. 

 Officers were able to determine that Strowder had burglarized the residence on Brittany Drive where he was first seen jumping over the fence.  Strowder had forced entry into the residence by breaking the rear window to the residence.  Once inside; Strowder ransacked the residence, taking jewelry and coins, which was recovered. 

 As a result of an investigation, the Kenner Police Department has linked Strowder to multiple residential burglaries in which video surveillance has been recovered from locations where he was seen fleeing the area on a bicycle after he committed other residential burglaries.  Strowder was interviewed by Detectives Mike Jackson and Aaron Savoie.  Although Strowder did not to admit to all the burglaries, Strowder told detectives he does have a job, but he does not make enough money to support a drug addiction that he has which causes him to do what he does.

 Strowder has multiple convictions for simple burglary (residential / multiple counts), illegal possession of stolen things, possession of a firearm by a person convicted of certain felonies, and theft.

 Strowder has been booked with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling (10-counts), and criminal trespassing, (6-counts).
