Incident: Recovered Stolen Vehicle
Jan 14, 2023
On Saturday January 14th, 2023 at approximately 2:15 pm a Deputy with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office was on patrol in Howell Township on I-96 when he checked the registration on a 2023 Ram pickup. The license plate showed it was stolen out of the Detroit Police Department in December of 2022 along with a GMC Envoy.
As the Deputy approached the vehicle to conduct a traffic stop it abruptly exited I-96 onto Highland Road where Deputies performed a high risk traffic stop to take the two occupants into custody. The driver, a 26 year old male from Detroit, admitted to knowing the vehicle was stolen and was subsequently lodged for receiving and concealing a stolen motor vehicle.
The 2023 Ram pickup appears to have been stolen from a manufacturer lot in Sterling Heights on an unknown date. This is the fourth stolen vehicle recovered this week in Livingston County.
