Sep 16 2009
Authorities arrested a man they said traded his father's car for $50 worth of crack cocaine. Deputies arrested the 39-year-old man around 4 a.m. Wednesday after his 74-year-old father reported that his Lincoln had been stolen. When deputies arrived at the father's home, they saw the son walking up the street. They determined that the car had been sold for drugs.
Deputies later saw someone else driving the Lincoln, and pulled it over. The driver fled the moving car, which then hit two parked cars.
Deputies caught the driver, who was arrested on suspicion of evading an officer and resisting arrest.
The son was arrested on suspicion of car theft.
Authorities did not release the names of those involved but did release a photo of the thieving son. (See above)
