Caddo Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man for making a bomb threat that targeted Caddo Juvenile Court in October, said Sheriff Steve Prator.


The call was made to 911 on October 26 and prompted the evacuation and search of the Caddo Juvenile Courthouse and Juvenile Detention Center.  Caddo Sheriff’s Detective Larry Pierce obtained several search warrants during a seven-month investigation and tracked the call to Martin Dewayne Allen, 47, of Shreveport.


On Friday, May 26, Pierce obtained an arrest warrant for Allen for communicating false information of a planned arson. Bond on the warrant was set at $100,000.  Allen was located and charged at Caddo Correctional Center where he was being held on an unrelated probation violation charge.
