Wanted felon arrested by WCPD in Downtown Walnut Creek

On 8/2/15 at approx. 1322 hours, an astute citizen saw a wanted suspect in the San Miguel Shopping Center at 1270 Newell Avenue. The suspect, James G. Beldin (3/17/63), was wanted by Concord PD for robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. In addition, Beldin was a parolee at large and a sex offender registrant. Walnut Creek PD officers conducted an area check and located Beldin’s vehicle in the parking lot. Walnut Creek PD officers then observed Beldin near the intersection of Broadway and Newell Avenue and took him into custody after a brief foot pursuit. Officers also learned Beldin had earlier attempted to photograph the undergarments of a female wearing a skirt in downtown Walnut Creek.

Walnut Creek PD and Concord PD will work cooperatively to bring criminal charges against Beldin.

Please contact the WCPD at 925-943-5844 if you have any information regarding additional crimes the suspect may have committed.
