GLENEDEN BEACH — A suspect has been arrested after neighbors rallied to help find one of the burglars who rifled 102 post office boxes here in the early morning hours of Aug. 19.

Joseph Galen Story was jailed Saturday, Aug.21, amid scores of theft and conspiracy charges and a massive, $4.4 million bail. Workers and business owners from a business plaza known as Gleneden Beach Station reportedly recognized the man from nearby security photographs taken during the 1:30 a.m. break-in at Gleneden Beach Post Office.

A person close to the case reported that the suspect was spotted, confronted and followed by civilians who called 911. Lincoln Co. Sheriff’s Deputy Zach Landry arrived and interrogated the suspect, reportedly discovering 10 pounds of stolen mail and some narcotics. The suspect was apparently not on local police radar when “he drifted in and began lurking around,” according to a resident who was on high alert. “Everybody was looking for these guys,” he said.

According to his jailhouse rap sheet, Story faces 83 counts of mail theft, two counts of criminal conspiracy and one charge of criminal mischief in the 1st degree. All of the counts carry a $50,000 bail. His photo had not been posted on the LCSO jail web site at press time. Homepage will continue to post further developments as they emerge.

Zeke Olsen, a clerk with the Gleneden Beach U.S. Post Office, said the sheriff’s office will return the seized mail Monday morning for redistribution. Meanwhile, the search is still on for a second suspect.
