At about 6pm on Saturday, March 19, Sgt. P. A. Bass attempted to stop a green Jeep Liberty in the area of Kanawha Terrace and Green Valley Drive. The registration plate on the Jeep belonged on a Chev S-10. The driver of the Jeep did not immediately pull over, instead he proceeded to MacCorkle Avenue before finally pulling over in the 6500 block. The driver was noticed reaching under the seat. When requested, the driver did not produce an operator’s license, instead handing over a WV non-driver’s identification. When the VIN on the Jeep was checked, it was revealed the Jeep was listed as stolen from the Dunbar area.
The driver, Michael S. Jarrett was arrested and charged with the felony of Possession of a Stolen Vehicle. In the future, he will possibly face further misdemeanor charges related to drug possession and license/registration related offenses. He was taken to the South Central Regional Jail to await arraignment. Jarrett is 44 yoa and from Dunbar.
All persons arrested are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
