Car Thief Search

Posted on 19th April 2013 at 16:28

Longview Police are also working to find Justin Tofte, 27, after an incident that took place this morning, involving a stolen car and a search effort in the 300 block of Cypress. Around 2:40 this morning, a man called LPD, reporting that Tofte had approached him and asked for help in transporting a stolen car. The man refused, and Tofte drove off at a high rate of speed. Officers responded and spotted the car, which Tofte then ditched, taking off on foot. A K-9 was brought in to search the area, without success; officers did find an Airsoft pistol that Tofte apparently dropped. They say that the toy gun had been altered to look like a real weapon. If you have information on the whereabouts of Justin Tofte, you’re asked to call 911 right away.
