On Sunday, January 16, 2022, Central Point Police Officers responded to a report of a television having been shoplifted in the 3000 block of Hamrick Rd.
The suspect left in a U-Haul truck which was identified by its license plate. Officers quickly located the U-Haul in the 1600 block of E. Pine St. where they contacted the suspect.
After investigation, the suspect was arrested for the theft and the vehicle was impounded pending a search warrant.
Officers subsequently served a search warrant on the vehicle and located several stolen items including five large screen televisions, at least one of which is believed to be stolen out of Washington.
Due to the thoroughness of the investigating officers, the CPPD is looking at solving crimes that were committed in at least two states.
As this is an ongoing investigation, the suspect’s identity is not being released at this time.
