BURGLARY OF A CONVEYANCE (AUTO THEFT), GRAND THEFT, FLEEING AND ELUDING AN OFFICER (WITH LIGHTS AND SIREN)

Police saw a stolen pick-up truck run a stop sign and tried to make a stop. The driver of the truck successfully eluded the officer and was not stopped. 15-20 minutes later the unoccupied stolen pick-up truck was located in front of a residence. The officer claimed that our client, who was at the residence, looked like the person who had been driving the truck a bit earlier when police (that same officer) tried to stop it. The officer was very aggressive and took our client into custody at gunpoint. Our client denied any involvement or knowledge of the truck. Longwell Lawyers worked with our client and the witnesses to clearly demonstrate that the client should not have been arrested and that there was a verifiable alibi. Most disturbingly, the officers knew of the alibi information but chose to arrest our client anyway.
