Detectives began their investigation and were able to obtain enough evidence to secure arrest warrants for Miller.  Detectives located Miller on August 11th and took him into custody without incident.  Miller was transported and booked into Rapides Parish Detention Center for 1 count Domestic Abuse Battery and 1 count Theft under $300.  Kirby remains in jail on a $75,250.00 bond.
