Gun-toting homeowners thwart 2 burglaries, detain suspects

Two separate weekend incidents saw men accused of burglary enter local homes and be held at gunpoint by residents. Eros burglary According to an arrest affidavit for Tommy Foster Jr., 40, Plum Hill Road, deputies were dispatched to a home on a Plum Hill Road in reference to a burglary in progress Friday. The caller said Foster forced entry into her home and was in her living room being held at gunpoint. Before deputies arrived, Foster fled the scene in a black Ford truck. Deputies reported meeting the truck at the end of Plum Hill Road and stopped it. Foster was in the front passenger seat but refused commands to exit the vehicle. He was subsequently removed and placed in restraints. The victim told officers she was sleeping in the back room at her home and heard a loud bang. She said she grabbed her rifle, walked into the living room and saw Foster walking into the kitchen. Per the report, Foster said, "They are going to kill me." The victim pointed her gun at Foster and attempted to detain him until deputies arrived, but Foster fled through the door he used to enter the home. The affidavit states Foster admitted to being under the influence of bath salts. Ambulance service was requested and Foster was cleared by the technicians before being taken into custody. As officers attempted to place Foster in the patrol unit, he began kicking two deputies in the chest and legs. It took six deputies to force him back in the unit. Foster was booked into Ouachita Correctional Center on charges of simple burglary, resisting an officer and battery of a police officer. West Monroe burglary The second incident occurred in West Monroe on Saturday. Deputies were dispatched to Oliece Drive on a burglary complaint. When they arrived the suspect, later identified as Drake King, 38, Washington Street, was being held at gunpoint by the victim. The victim told deputies he heard a noise and found King attempting to pry open the back door of his home. King told deputies he was running from people who were trying to get him. He said he went to the back door of the home and found a piece of metal in the yard. Per the report, King said he pried the door from the bottom to make the alarm go off, and he was trying to get inside to hide from the people after him. King was booked on one count of attempted simple burglary.
