Keithville man charged with cyber stalking

Posted: Updated:

UNION PARISH, La., (KNOE 8 News) - The Union Parish Sheriff's Office is holding a Keithville resident on a cyber stalking charge for telephone calls he made randomly throughout the northern Louisiana area.

Sheriff Bob Buckley said James Lee Bamburg, 52, had repeatedly called a Farmerville woman using inappropriate language from a company cell phone in Bossier Parish. He said the phone calls began in February and the victim reported the repeated calls in March.

The cell phone had a blocked number, but investigators finally traced it to the Shreveport area and Bossier Parish deputies joined the investigation that lead to Bamburg's arrest.

Buckley said Bamburg told investigators that he repeatedly called victims from his company cell phone and suggested inappropriate things for sexual gratification. The sheriff said the suspect would randomly call phone numbers until a female answered and once they did, he would continue to call that number.

Bamburg also was charged in Bossier Parish with a count of improper telephone communications. He was charged with cyber stalking in the Union Parish case because he made repeated calls over a two-month period to the victim.

A first time cyber stalking suspect is subject to a year in jail and up to a $2,000 fine if found guilty.

Bamburg is in the Union Parish Detention Center with bond set at $15,000.
