Burglar Busted

Posted on 31st August 2016 at 06:17

Scott Wayne Johnson, 39, of Longview is under arrest after he was reportedly caught burglarizing a home on View Ridge Circle in Longview. Shortly after noon yesterday, the resident of the home called 911, saying that they had just interrupted a burglary, with the suspect dropping several items before running out the front door of the house. Longview Police converged on the area, heading toward City View, which is where the suspect was seen running. Officers stopped and arrested Johnson near a home on MacAtee Drive; another resident of the area called LPD to say that they had seen a man matching Johnson’s description in the area on Monday, saying that he was “scary” and “scruffy-looking.” Johnson is now being held on as single count of residential burglary, along with warrants for civil contempt and failure to appear in court.
