Driver busted for drugs, speeding in stolen vehicle
Menomonee Falls - An 18-year-old Milwaukee man is facing several charges, including theft and drug possession, when police discovered he was driving a stolen car after they pulled him over for speeding in Menomonee Falls on March 17.
According to the police report:
Officers responding to a possible drunken driving call executed a traffic stop on a black Toyota Rav4 for speeding and for having no front license plate near Speedway, N87 W17245 Main St., at about 4:30 p.m. March 17.
When officers questioned him about the missing license plate, the driver, an 18-year-old Milwaukee man, stated he was unaware the plate was missing because the car belonged to his sister.
When police ran the Missouri license plate on the rear of the vehicle through the Department of Motor Vehicles, they discovered the plate was not assigned to the Toyota Rav4. Further investigation revealed the Rav4 had been stolen from Andy's Gas on Highway 100 and West Layton Avenue in Greenfield on March 14, when the driver went inside to pay for gas at about 7 p.m.
A search of the vehicle also led to the discovery of a partially smoked marijuana cigar and a small plastic bag filled with marijuana by the driver's seat.
He was arrested for operating a vehicle without the owner's consent, theft and possession of marijuana and was taken into custody.
Two arrested after ID has marijuana stuck to it
Menomonee Falls - Menomonee Falls police arrested two people for drug possession after police noticed that a large clump of marijuana was stuck to the face of one of the subjects' driver's license during a traffic stop on March 18.
According to the police report:
An officer who pulled a 1996 Chrysler Sebring for suspended registration on Appleton Avenue and Premier Lane at about 3:30 p.m. discovered the driver, an 18-year-old Milwaukee man, was driving on a suspended driver's license.
The officer asked the passenger for identification but he did not have any identification or driver's license with him. After running a check on the driver the officer discovered he was driving with a suspended driver's license.
The passenger, an 18-year-old Milwaukee woman, then handed her driver's license to the officer, and the officer noticed a tightly packed "vegetable material" was stuck to its face, according to the report. The material looked and smelled like marijuana, and when questioned about the substance the woman gave her wallet to the officer which contained several more chunks of the same material.
After she was taken into custody for possession of marijuana, the driver also admitted having marijuana in a pill bottle in his pocket. Police recovered the bottle, which contained four packaged bundles of the same green, leafy material that later tested positive for THC.
He was arrested and cited for possession of marijuana, driving a vehicle with suspended registration and driving while suspended.
