Officers arrest individuals for stalking, resisting arrest, improper communication

Officers were busy Wednesday, May 11 with cases of stalking, resisting an officer, and improper communications.

On May 9, Louisiana Tech police officers advised Aidan Shipp, 19, of Texarkana, Ark., that he was not to have any further contact with a complainant due to numerous unwanted calls and texts, including to the complainant’s brother to pass to the complainant. Shipp advised he understood he was to have no further contact. However, on the morning of May 11, the complainant called and said that Shipp was beating on her window and telling her to meet him at the Lady of the Mist statue on Tech’s campus. Shipp told authorities he had knocked on the window and spoken to the complainant. He was charged with stalking, and bond was set at $25,000.

Right after midnight on May 11, Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Officers responded to a Nutmeg Drive residence in reference to a 911 call with unknown trouble. Upon arrival, the deputy made contact with Lamont Rogers, 34, of Ruston, who was walking along Highway 80 near Nutmeg Drive. The deputy asked if Rogers called 911, and he stated yes. Due to many 911 calls to LPSO recently with a male subject calling on a cell phone reporting trouble on Nutmeg Drive, Rogers was detained. Rogers at first provided his last name as Jones, stating he called 911 because his girlfriend hit him in the face with a pipe. No injuries were observed on his face that would have been consistent with him being hit with a pipe. The deputy contacted Rogers’ girlfriend, who admitted Rogers was the one calling 911 and leaving the area prior to police’s arrival. Bond was set at $12,500.

A little after noon on the same day, LPSO met Talais Cordero, of Ruston, at his residence in reference to an improper telecommunication report by his neighbor. Cordero’s neighbor informed deputies that he had messaged her an inappropriate nude photo of himself earlier in the morning. Cordero, 30, admitted to authorities that he had sent the text earlier that morning. He was charged with improper telephone communication. Bond for Cordero was not set as of Thursday afternoon.
