Youth tries to run after stealing truck

Saturday, November 17, 2007

A 16-year-old Winchester boy driving a stolen truck was arrested by Shelbyville police following a foot chase near Wal-Mart on Thursday.

Officer Jose Garza said the youth didn't immediately stop the truck after being clocked at 47 mph in a 30 mph zone on North Main Street near the store's entrance.

The boy stopped in the Hollywood Video parking lot, then ran into a nearby wooded area, Garza said.

Police apprehended the boy when he "jumped out of the bushes and tried to get away," according to Garza.

The boy told Garza he ran due to lack of a driver's license and added the truck "might be stolen."

In fact, it was stolen -- from Kirby Bannister, South Cannon Boulevard, who had reported it stolen earlier in the day.

The boy was charged with theft of property, illegal consumption, evading arrest, no driver's license and speeding.

Pot charge

Marijuana was found in a vehicle after the driver was stopped for expired tags Thursday night, police said.

Officer Waymond Boyd was granted permission by Latasha Robb of Shelbyville to search her car after the stop at the Elm Street-Colloredo Boulevard intersection.

Robb, 19, Halls Mill Road, was charged with possession of a schedule VI drug after a small bag of pot was found, Boyd said. She was released on $250 bond.


A coin machine and contents were pried off a wall at the office of Magnolia Village Apartments, Landers Street, overnight Tuesday, Shelbyville police said.

The amount of money taken has not been determined.
