Suspect Arrested In Copperopolis for Burglary, Robbery and Vehicle Theft In Angels Camp

Angels Camp, CA...On 04/24/17 an Angels Camp PD officer took a vehicle theft report, where the suspect entered the victim's home and threatened the victim with violence if he did not allow him to use his vehicle. The victim said that a mutual friend brought the suspect to his home, and that he only knew him as "Joey." On 04/26/17 another Angels Camp PD officer was doing follow-up investigation on this case and met with the victim. During the interview the victim advised of a previous incident that occurred on 04/15/17, where the same suspect took the victim's car after threatening him with violence. After taking the car on 04/15/17, the victim stated that the vehicle was returned on 04/22/17. Fearing violence, the victim did not initially report the first time his vehicle was taken.




During the follow-up interview the victim advised that on 04/24/17, the suspect entered the victim's home at approximately 1 AM, and took the vehicle a second time after threatening violence if the victim did not comply. The victim said that he was unsure how the suspect got into his home, and he was later advised by a mutual friend that his vehicle was stolen from the suspect while the suspect was in Stockton.

The suspect was ultimately identified through a photo array, where the victim positively identified him. Officers from the Angels Camp PD went to the suspect's address in Copperopolis to interview him, and arrested Joseph J. Lecompte, a 26 year old male. Lecompte provided a statement and confirmed that the vehicle was stolen from him while he was in Stockton, after he was beaten and robbed. Lecompte denied taking the vehicle against the victim's will, stating that he had permission from the victim to drive the vehicle. Lecompte had no explanation as to why he did not report the battery and robbery that occurred where he was the victim in Stockton.

During the follow-up investigation on 04/26/17, officers were advised that San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office recovered the victim's vehicle in San Joaquin County, and the victim was notified.

Lecompte was transported and booked into the Calaveras County Jail, on charges related to burglary (two counts), robbery (two counts), vehicle theft (two counts), and criminal threats.

    Some just never learn or refuse to even try. Jails, Institutions and Death are all they have if they do not stop themselves or Divine Intervention does not take place.

    That is reality.

              Arnold? Murphys, Anal Camp, Copper, San Andreas.....you don't get out much, huh? The crime stats have changed if you haven't noticed. It's more dangerous to live here now then in your "average" big city. That pitiful little bail amount given out up here, let's repeat offenders go on their merry way to commit more crimes while awaiting trial has been one of the main contributing factors to the rise in crime.

He was a good kid until the age of 12 or 13, then he started to become mean, started fighting with kids on the play ground and after school, his grade plummeted.
We found out when he was drinking at an early age because of alcoholic parents who were beating him severely for years.
No doubt he's into harder drugs now, 80 proof or more.

    That's a sad story behind all of this. Still, more violence to others can't be excused. I hope he sobers up and has the courage to turn things around.

        He is a likely candidate for a Trump protester. He already has bruises and can claim the trump supporters beat him. With his expertise in intimidation, theft and violence he might be used as a trainer. He has probably had multiple offers by now to join the "Never Trumpers".
