Traffic Ticket Helps Police Catch Carjacker
Memphis police have accused a man of robbing and carjacking a woman late last month. He evaded the police and arrest at that time.
This week police spotted the same car speeding down the wrong side of a road. Eventually, the vehicle crashed into a fence. By the time the police caught up to the vehicle the driver was already gone. However, he left a traffic ticket previously issued to him inside the car.
Armed with a name, the officers knew who they were looking for and eventually located him loitering near the accident scene.
Traffic tickets can lead to higher insurance rates, points, fine, surcharges, suspensions, etc. Rarely do they lead to carjacking and weapons charges as they did here.
