Suspect Caught

Posted on 29th July 2010 at 07:47

After a manhunt of several days, Thomas Cecil, 26, is under arrest, picked up yesterday evening as he was hiding in a West Longview storage unit. Longview Police had been looking for Cecil since last Thursday, when he allegedly dragged a LPD Detective some 60 feet with his car. The Detective was trying to arrest Cecil as a suspect in the passing of a number of bogus checks. Acting on a tip, police went to the Solo Storage complex in the 39 hundred block of Memorial Park Drive, and found Cecil sleeping on a couch inside one of the storage units. It’s reported that an accomplice of Cecil was renting the unit, and had locked Cecil inside earlier in the day. Cecil was arrested without incident, and is now being held on a laundry list of charges, including assault, forgery, fraud, ID theft and other counts. Initial bail is set at $115,000. The accomplice was also arrested on an outstanding warrant.
