Man with a long list of convictions is sentenced to jail again

Local News

A man with convictions of burglaries and thefts from 1990 to this year has received his latest sentence to a state jail facility.

Christopher Wayne Beamon, 47, who police said has used the alias John Wayne, received 10 months in state jail for a burglary in May.

Police said an apartment under renovation was burglarized with tools and golf clubs taken and that Beamon found a resident nearby that agreed to pawn some of the items. After Beamon told him they had come from a garage he cleaned out, he didn’t have an ID, so he couldn’t pawn them himself.

In a previous case in 2016, Beamon was arrested after fleeing police on a bicycle. Officers said when they found him hiding in a house, he told them his name was John Wayne. In 2013, he was convicted of a car burglary in which he was arrested wearing new clothes purchased with the victim’s credit card.

Beamon’s record shows convictions for about 10 burglaries, thefts and other charges since 1990.
