Motor vehicle violations led to the arrest of a 40-year-old Elk man on Aug. 14 for possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeff Shover was patrolling the area of 37000 North Newport Highway about noon when he spotted a Toyota pickup that had an obscured license plate, broken windshield and no mud flaps. He stopped the truck and identified the driver as James E. White.
White said the truck was not his and he could not provide any paperwork for the vehicle. When Shover ran the truck’s identification number through the Department of Licensing, he learned it had been reported stolen in 2010.
Shover noted the truck’s ignition was extensively damaged and he arrested White on the felony possession charge.
