An alleged car theft was solved just hours after the incident occurred by the Manchester Police Department when officer Jeff Couch spotted the car while on patrol on Route 687 and stopped the vehicle at the mouth of Caudill Gap.
Robert Young, age 35 of Manchester was arrested and charged with theft by unlawful taking (auto), driving DUI suspended license (second offense in five years). Officer Jimmy Smith was the arresting officer.
The alleged theft took place during an earlier investigation of shoplifting at Wal-Mart. Young was a passenger in a car driven by Judy Ross (Roberts). During the investigation Ross, age 37, was arrested on outstanding warrants by officer Smith and charged with wanton endangerment (second degree), assault (fourth degree) (minor injury) and criminal mischief (third degree). Officer Couch assisted Smith at the scene.
After Ross was arrested she requested someone to be called to pick up her car. Young offered to drive it, but he had a suspended license. When Ross was put in the cruiser, Young jumped into the drivers seat and fled the scene in the Ross car.
Ross filed a complaint against Young and the car was listed as stolen.
Funeral services were held Monday for a Tanyard man who died as the result of a tractor rollover accident. Jesse Robert Napier was buried at Tanyard Cemetery, very close to were the accident happened that claimed his life.
