Kentwood burglary suspect caught on camera identified

KENTWOOD — The man accused of burglary in the Spring Creek neighborhood in Kentwood had been identified, according to the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives have identified the suspect as Benjamin James Warren, Jr. Officials say several felony warrants are being sought for his arrest.

Tangipahoa Sheriff Daniel Edwards said deputies responded to an address on Highway 1054 in reference to a burglary in progress just before 2 p.m. on Jan. 8.

The homeowner’s doorbell camera shows an unknown white male wearing a brown Carhartt jacket and blue jeans walking across the porch and entering the home. As the suspect began to enter the residence, the homeowner’s voice through the doorbell camera scared the subject, and he attempted to rip the camera from the door frame. 

While deputies were heading to the address, the suspect was seen leaving the residence in a dark blue Chevrolet Silverado truck without a license plate. Detectives say the exact vehicle has been seen at other homes in the area, as reported by other Spring Creek. 

Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s identity should contact Sergeant Wylie Foster at 985-748-3337, or if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa’s anonymous tip line at 1.800.554.5245 or visit and click on the P3 Tips icon or Submit A Tip!
