Mom’s stolen car gets son in heap of trouble
On Friday, October 27 a Victorville man who was initially arrested for driving a stolen car had his charges dropped after a further investigation revealed his mother was wanted for stealing the car. The 22-year-old was pulled over near the intersection of Mountain Avenue and Ashfield Avenue, just before 7 a.m. after police found out the Hyundai Accent was reported stolen out of San Bernardino County. The man was arrested on charges including stolen vehicle, possession of stolen property and driving with a suspended license. Later, it was discovered that not only did the man not know the car he was driving was stolen, but also his mother is wanted for stealing it, Lt. Ciszek said. All charges were dropped except for driving with a suspended license.
