Raymond L. Griffith, 40, of Ocean Park, was last seen Sunday at the Long Beach Police Station where he posted $500 bail after being arrested on an outstanding warrant from Long Beach Municipal Court. The bail money, plus more than $1,000 in Griffith's wallet at the time of his arrest, is suspected to be from the Ocean Park robbery. According to PCSO Deputy Kendall Biggs, the weekend deposit from the liquor store, which had been given to Griffith to deposit by a store employee, never made it to the bank. Biggs said the store manager went to the bank to get the deposit bags Monday and found the deposit hadn't been made. After contacting the store employee, allegedly Griffith's girlfriend, she said he had fled that morning, taking his belongings with him, Biggs said. Griffith, who is 6 feet 3 inches tall, 165 pounds, with salt-and-pepper pony tail and beard, left Ocean Park in a light blue 1968 GMC pickup, license plate A07099D. He could be heading to Longview, Texas or New Mexico, Biggs said. Griffith allegedly purchased the pickup with money from the robbery. People with information about Griffith should call Pacific County Dispatch at 642-9397.Sunday presentation features medical aspects of Lewis and Clark Expedition FORT COLUMBIA - Gary Lentz, park manager of the Lewis and Clark Trail State Park in Dayton, will make a presentation this Sunday, Nov. 10, 2:30 p.m. at Fort Columbia State Park east of Chinook on "The Medical Problems of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
