Longview Firefighter Suspended after Stalking Charge

A longtime member of the Longview fire department has been put on unpaid leave after being arrested on stalking charges. 53 year old Robert Trowbridge, a 20 year veteran of the Longview Fire Department , was arrested Thursday after a female victim reported that he had stalked her repeatedly and threatened her safety.

Trowbridge has been placed on unpaid leave until the charges are resolved. He is free after posting $2,000 bond.

If convicted on third degree felony stalking charges he could face a maximum of 10 years in prison.
