Website leads to arrest of fraud suspect | Crime
Just two days after launching its local participation in a statewide online website that helps to track down criminals, the Clarkston Police Department received a tip that led to the arrest of a male subject wanted for questioning in a fraud case.
According to Police Chief Joel Hastings, Jeffrey Stevens, 60, of Pullman was located and arrested yesterday for 2nd- degree theft charges for allegedly stealing a wallet from Bi-Mart on November 20th.
"The victim reported a Visa card that was stolen with the wallet was used several times and about $1200.00 had been fraudulently charged to it before it was reported stolen," Hastings says.
The Clarkston Police Department will continue to post pictures and videos of individuals who are suspects in major crimes, including high-dollar amount thefts, burglaries, and robberies to the CanYouID.me site. The Department also has a tip line at CrimeTips@ClarkstonPolice.org and a Twitter account at @ClarkstonPolice.
