Milpitas Police Department Apprehends Car Thief

A call came in to the Milpitas Police Department.

The caller, a concerned resident, spoke of a strange blue Honda Accord. It had somebody behind the wheel, and was parked in the carport of a neighboring home.

Date: 1/9/19. Time: 11:40AM. Location: Pimentel Circle’s 50th block.

Upon arrival, MPD officers peeked inside the Honda and saw Arthur Jack Carson (31) of San Jose. As for the vehicle, they confirmed it had been stolen 6 days earlier in San Jose.

Carson woke. He cooperated as the cops arrested him. In the car, in his wake, they found what looked to be crystal meth, along with heroin. Meanwhile, Carson had already been placed on probation in Santa Clara, resulting from prior thefts.

The police booked the suspect into Santa Clara County Main Jail. Charges: possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of a controlled substance & drug paraphernalia, possession of stolen property, probation violation.

The MPD issued a press release stating, “We would like to thank and commend the resident that alerted us to suspicious activity in their neighborhood. We continue to encourage residents to call us when they identify suspicious activity as it can help to reduce crime.”
