Man Swipes Fiancee's Sister's Truck, Phoenixville Police Say

The man was in possession of heroin when he was arrested, according to police.

A 26-year-old Zionsville man faces criminal charges after, Phoenixville Police say, he took his fianceé's sister's truck without permission. The man was in possession of heroin and marijuana when he was apprehended, according to court documents.

On Saturday, Phoenixville Police say a woman came to the station to report that her sister's fiancé, the defendant, had taken her truck without permission. According to court documents, the women woke up that morning to find that the 1992 Ford pickup was missing. She told police that she had lent the defendant the vehicle in the past, but stopped once she learned that he did not have a valid driver’s license.

Phoenixville Police entered the vehicle into the National Crime Information Center—a national index of information related to active crimes—and at 10:30 p.m. that evening, Upper Uwchlan Police pulled the vehicle over on Pottstown Pike in Upper Uwchlan Township, police say. The driver was taken into custody and handed over to Phoenixville Police. During the transfer, Phoenixville Police searched the defendant and found a baggie of marijuana and six bags of what lab testing later confirmed was heroin, police say.

The defendant was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property, and various drug charges. He faces a preliminary hearing May 9.

OK Tom - let's see. Misdemeanor - DUI unless injury or death, Misdemeanor - Stolen merchandise (if between $500 and $ 5000) otherwise if over $5000 it's a felony and under $500 it's a summary offense. Possible Felony - 6 bags of heroin (intent to deliver?) And taking a truck without permission, is that not stealing? Oh, a 1992 model. Less than $5000. OK! Another Misdemeanor. Wow - add up the possible time if guilty on all charges - he could be on a paid vacation for a few years. There goes the wedding...................

first off, i am the defendants fiancee and what my sister did was completely uncalled for!!! THAT IS MY TRUCK! BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY ME! SHE WAS THROWING A HISSYFIT FOR WHATEVER REASON AT THIS POINT AND REPORTED MY TRUCK STOLEN! WHICH IT WAS NOT STOLEN! SHE KNEW WHEN THE TRUCK PUT INTO HER NAME THAT HIS LICENSE WAS SUSPENDED! SO SHOULDNT SHE BE CHARGED FOR ALLOWING AN UNLICENSED DRIVER USE A VEHICLE WITHOUT A LICENSE!? HE IS NOT A CRIMINAL! HE IS A MAN FIGHTING SOME DEMONS! HE TRYING TO GET HIS LIFE TOGETHER! HE IS SOBER! AND WORKING VERY HARD TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT! THE FACT THAT THIS WAS POSTED WAS VERY CHILDISH!
