October 24, 2018
Linn County Circuit Court issued a warrant for failure to appear for James Lee Baker Oct. 19 after he was supposed to appear for sentencing for burglary.
Baker pleaded no contest Sept. 10 in Linn County Circuit Court to second-degree burglary.
Baker was one of two arrested June 21 in connection to a burglary and theft of cigarettes from Safeway, 1540 Main St., theft of items from a Linn Shuttle bus and a stolen vehicle.
While on routine patrol, a police officer had observed a passenger in a pickup who matched the description of a person involved in the burglary at Safeway.
