Jackson man arrested after deputies discover wrecked stolen car A Jackson man was arrested and charged with theft by receiv- ing stolen property after he was involved in a two-vehicle wreck while driving a stolen car at a High Falls Road motel on Sept. 26. At about 6:48 a.m the male owner of a tan Chevrolet S-10 truck told Cpl. John Thompson that a gray 2006 Mazda Miata had rear-ended his truck at the High Falls Hideaway motel. The truck's owner said it was unoc- cupied and parked in a parking space at the time of the incident. The truck's owner said his vehicle did not have any damage and said he didn't want to file a report. The male Miata driver, who was being treated by Monroe County EMTs and looked as if he had just woken up, told Thompson he was parked in the parking lot and must have fallen asleep with his foot on the brake, caus- ing his vehicle to roll into the truck. Dispatchers then notified Thompson that the Miata was reported stolen out of Henry County on Sept. 17. The driver told Thompson he met another man on Grindr, and the other man had allowed him to drive his Miata while the driver's vehicle was being repaired. The driver said he had been in possession of the Miata for about two weeks but had not spoken to the other man in about a week. Thompson then inventoried the Miata and found on the front seat a black zip-up container with a small bag ofmethamphetamine and a bag of marijuana inside. The driver then admitted he had been ar- rested in Henry County on drug possession charges earlier in the month. Thompson then asked the driver what he was doing at the motel, and the driver said he was meeting someone else he had been talking with on Grindr. The Miata's male owner said his brother was the other man on Grindr and said the driver had taken the car and never returned it. The owner said his brother had since gone to another state for drug rehab. Thompson then took the Miata driver to the Monroe County Jail, where he was also charged with possession ofmeth- amphetamine and possession of marijuana.
