Facebook Tip

Posted on 30th November 2017 at 08:01

Longview Police have a theft suspect in custody, after a local woman relayed a tip that she got from one of the local Facebook sites. Late yesterday morning, there was a posting about a bicycle that was stolen from a location out on 46th Avenue. Around 11:20 yesterday morning, a woman living on Blue Heron Drive called LPD, saying that she thought that the bicycle was tucked into her carport, and that the suspect was sleeping in her car. The suspect reportedly rode off on the bike before officers arrived, but the man was stopped nearby. A check of the bicycle serial number showed that it was stolen; officers also recovered a number of other items, including electronics and video game systems. Joseph Beaudoin was arrested and booked into the Cowlitz County Jail, but has since been released on bail. Detectives continue to investigate.
