Over the weekend and into Monday, the Beaumont Police Department received several calls that a tall, white male adult, with tattoos had been knocking on doors and when residents answered, he would offer to sell them items or ask to use their telephone. Beaumont Police Officers responded but were unable to locate the subject.
On Wednesday, November 22, 2017, at approximately 12:50am, the Beaumont Police Department received a call that a suspicious subject matching the description of the previous calls had knocked on the front door of a resident of Seneca Springs. Officers responded to the area and located, Jeremy Nejedly (age 24) of Beaumont.
Nejedly was identified as the same subject that has been in several neighborhoods over the last few days knocking on doors in the community and prompting calls into the police department. Nejedly was determined to be on probation for receiving stolen property and active parole.
Officers contacted Nejedly’s parole officer and he placed a hold on Nejedly. Officers took Nejedly into custody and he was booked at Smith Correctional Facility for violation of Parole.
