Arrest made in Hillcrest burglaries



The LRPD says an arrest has been made in the spate of home burglaries reported during daylight hours Monday in Hillcrest and the Heights. Break-ins while occupants were away resulted in thefts of computers, silverware and French champagne, among others.

Bryant Anthony Billings, 40, was charged with burglary and theft in a break-n at 4809 North Lookout, Sgt. Cassandra Davis. Detectives apparently got a tip that led them to the arrest. Further charges are being investigated.

UPDATE: A second suspect, Philip Hatton, has been arrested in a Hillcrest burglary. Police reports indicate the arrest of Hatton and Billigns were made in investigation of yet another burglary, on Valentine Street, in which one man did the break-in and another drove a getaway car.
