The victim could not implicate any possible suspect(s) who could have stolen the side by side.
Sheriff’s Detectives from the Tioga substation were assigned the case as a follow up investigation and began their investigation. Through their investigation, Detectives compared the facts of this case to an ATV theft case from the 200 block of Sherwood Drive in Pineville, LA that occurred 2 days prior.. Detectives were able to determine that both thefts were connected and were also able to establish possible suspect (s).
As their investigation continued, Detectives were able to identify Jason William Fowler of Pollock, LA and Ryan Tylor McGlothlin of Pineville as suspects. From their investigation, Detectives were able to establish sufficient probable cause for arrest warrants to be issued for Fowler and McGlothlin for Theft of a Motor Vehicle greater than $5,000 and less than $25,000. As their investigation concluded, Detectives were able to establish more charges on both suspects.
Jason William Fowler was taken into custody without incident by the Grant Parish Sheriff’s Office on March 1 and is currently awaiting extradition to Rapides Parish.
