TROY, MI – Police Officers in Troy were investigating a vehicle accident in the area of the southbound I-75 exit ramp to Rochester Road when one of the officers located a woman walking on the shoulder of the interstate. The woman was carrying a gas can and upon seeing the officer, took off running.
Other officers in the area located her on the exit ramp and stopped her. The 37-year-old woman, from Davisburg, stated she had run out of gas and was walking to get some but could not explain why she was running from the officer.
She provided the officers with a valid State of Michigan Operator’s License which was not hers, but the officers were able to determine her true identity. They determined that her State of Michigan Operator’s License was ‘Suspended’ by the Michigan Secretary of State. She also had valid warrants for her arrest out of the 6th District Court for smuggling contraband into prison. She was also listed as a suspect in an Identity Theft Case from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office for the theft of the State of Michigan Operator’s License she was in possession of.
The victim in that criminal investigation stated she sent her State of Michigan Operator’s License and other documents to the United States Social Security Office to obtain a new card but her license never made it there. She did not give the suspect arrested permission to have her Operator’s License.
Other officers located her 2005 Chevrolet Silverado Pick-up Truck parked on the interstate. Located inside of the vehicle were several needles, a spoon, and a crack pipe on the front bench seat near the driver’s seat. The vehicle also did not have insurance coverage.
The suspect was charged with Hinder and Obstruction of a Police Officer, Identity Theft, Possession of Stolen Property, Possession of Narcotic Paraphernalia, No Vehicle Insurance, Driving While License Suspended – 2nd or Subsequent Offense, and Pedestrian in the Roadway.
