Dispute leads to vandalism arrest

A Ruston woman has been arrested after an allegation she threw a large rock through a window in Grambling.

Saturday afternoon Grambling Police responded to University Place Apartments to investigate a property damage complaint. The victim stated she heard a loud noise and discovered a large rock had been thrown through her front double pane windows. The victim said she called her roommate who told her Shabrea Cage had been texting her and making threats. Cage had allegedly accused the roommate of writing profanity on her Toyota Avalon.

GPD officers reviewed video from University Place and saw a black Avalon matching Cage’s vehicle enter the complex about the time of the vandalism and leave three minutes later. 

The property manager estimated the damage at over $1,000 and stated Cage did not live in the complex.

GPD contacted Cage, 26, by phone and requested she come to the station, but she refused, replying “you got to come get me.” GPD officers, accompanied by Ruston Police, went to Royal Crest Apartments on Tech Farm Road and took Cage into custody. She refused to answer questions and was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center.
