Shoplifting Arrest

Posted on 30th November 2015 at 09:07

Derek Nelson Kelley, 39, of Rainier is in the Cowlitz County Jail, picked up yesterday at the Home Depot, after employees identified him as a shoplifting suspect. Around 1:15 yesterday afternoon, store security contacted Longview Police, saying that Kelley had been shoplifting at the store on Saturday, and then he came back yesterday, to “return” some different items. Officers met with Kelley in the parking lot of the store, and reportedly found him in possession of some stolen items. Officers also say that Kelley has no fewer than seven outstanding warrants for failing to appear in court. He’s now being held on those no-bail warrants; it’s possible that organized retail theft charges could also be filed. A woman who was with Kelley was questioned and released.
