Police Department Car_sliderParis police officers suspected David Dee Ellis, 60, of involvement in the Feb. 15 burglary of items from a shed in the 2000 block of Bonham Street, but he insisted he was innocent.

A continuing investigation proved different, department spokesman Curtis Garrett said, and a warrant was issued for Ellis’ arrest.

Wednesday, Ellis was located during a traffic stop and taken into custody along with a passenger, Jason William Allen Ellis, 24, who was also found to have several outstanding Lamar County warrants, Garrett said.

Both were transferred to the Lamar County Jail.

The arrests were among 13 Wednesday by Paris police officers responding to 99 calls.
