Fugitive Arrest

Posted on 11th July 2014 at 16:01

A shoplifting suspect who is also wanted on felony warrants in Oregon is now in the Cowlitz County Jail, picked up yesterday afternoon by Longview Police. Officers went to the area of Campus Towers at about 4:30 yesterday afternoon, after getting a tip that Christopher Steven Crocker, 37, of Portland was at that location. As they arrived, Crocker was reportedly seen leaving in a mini-van, which was then stopped near 20th and Larch. Crocker was arrested without incident at that location; he’s now being held on local charges of third-degree theft and felony eluding. Along with the local charges, Crocker is being held on a Clark County warrant for organized retail theft. He also faces felony warrants from Multnomah and Clackamas counties in Oregon.
