Wanted: Justin Lee Rodriguez

CRIME FILES rodriguez,justin 6-13SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Justin Lee Rodriguez has been racking up charges for quite a while — long before last summer, when Springfield Police say they heard an extremely loud vehicle driving through the North End.

“The stereo was pounding, where you could hear it in Forest Park,” says Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney. “So they attempted to pull the car over to issue a citation for the loud stereo inside the car, but Justin wasn’t having any of it.”

Police say he took off down Liberty Street, forcing officers to pursue — first by car, then by foot. When police tackled him to the ground, it became apparent why he tried to flee.

“He was running from the law because he had a revoked license,” says Delaney. “He had a small amount of weed in the car, he ran through red lights, refusing to stop for a police officer.”

Rodriguez was arrested on those charges, then he defaulted.

Even with several warrant against him, police say Rodriguez was bold enough to show up in court a few weeks ago. But, he wasn’t there to answer to any charges. He was there to harass his girlfriend — a woman police say he’s been physically and psychologically abusing over the last six months.

“He has intimidated this woman, there’s a harassment order against him, a restraining order against him, she even went down to 50 State St., the courthouse, to get a complaint against him and he showed up to intimidate her,” says Delaney.

Police say Rodriguez has many addresses in Springfield, but they believe he could be anywhere in Western Mass.

If you see Justin Lee Rodriguez, call 9-1-1, or you can send police an anonymous tip.  Just text it to CRIMES or 2-7-4-6-3-7 and in the message type SOLVE and your tip.

      The report is wrong as always with this station. Delaney whoever that is is foolish for reporting the words of a liar. That so called girlfriend is in fact a liar just like her mother who fabriated every word that she has ever said to the police. Her last case was thrown out of court because she lied under oath. Learn your facts…that is why people switch over to WWLP!!!!!
