Burned journal leads to arrest of Louisiana man

The Oxford Police Department arrested a Mandeville, Louisiana man last week for allegedly burglarizing a female’s apartment.

Investigators say Robert Boyd, 21, broke into a woman’s apartment on March 21 and took food, a duffle bag and her journal. The alleged victim said Boyd burned her journal and placed three pages on the windshield of her vehicle.

Boyd was arrested and taken to the Lafayette County Detention Center where he was booked on a $10,000 bond.
