A string of burglaries at local businesses in not one but at least three cities along Highway 95 starting right here in Lewiston.

Idaho County Sheriff’s Office released this picture, from 2015, of Joseph Coleman Hodge of Jacksonville, Florida. They’re hoping someone knows where this 55-year old man is, because they would like to speak with him. He’s a person of interest in a string of burglaries from last week.

Detectives believe Hodge burglarized a Lewiston business on June 12, then hit four businesses in Riggins. The next day they believe he struck in New Meadows while traveling south on Highway 95.

Hodge is driving a vehicle believed to be a Honda Odyssey van displaying a Florida license plate. The vehicle appears to have been home spray painted dark blue or black.

If you have any information, contact the Idaho County Sheriff’s Office at 208-983-1100.
