YOUR DON’T NEED THIS KIND OF FRIEND. Officer observed a gray Lincoln LS traveling eastbound on M59 driving erratically and switching lanes without signalling. Officer activated his emergency lights, at which time the vehicle pulled partially onto the right shoulder and came to a stop with the left half of the car still in the travel lanes. Officer immediately noticed that the female driver’s eyelids were droopy, her speech was slow and slurred and she seemed uncertain where she was going. Driver admitted to taking a 1 mg. Xanax four hours ago and said she had smoked marijuana approximately 30 minutes ago. She did not have a medical marijuana card. Officer placed driver under arrest and searched her car. In a metal box, he found a small plastic container of marijuana, 12 round pills identified as Oxymorphone, a DEA schedule 2 substance; a prescription bottle containing 12 Xanax with a different name on the bottle; a clear plastic container containing a white powdery substance; two straws, and two empty glass vials. Driver said the box was placed in her car by a friend named “Roy,” known on the street as “pee wee.” She said she knew nothing about the contents of the box. Charges are open pending lab results.
HE WAS A LUCKY ONE. Officer dispatched to Rochester Hills residence for an identity theft report. Complainant stated he received an email from his bank regarding an address change to Spring Hill, FL on his bank credit card; he advised the bank to cancel the transaction. He also received a call from Wells Fargo that there was an attempt by an unknown person to open a credit card in his name with a St. Louis, MO address. Complainant said he hadn’t lost any money but was concerned that an unknown person has his vital information. Officer made a report and advised complainant to get Life Lock.
NOT SO LUCKY. An Indian national came to the substation to report that his cousin, whom he has power of attorney for, was issued a U.S. Social Security number and resides part time in the U.S. and India. While visiting the U.S., the cousin opened a bank account. In September the cousin received notice from the U.S. Superior Court Levy indicating his assets totaling $8,014.22 were being restricted due to outstanding debt. He contacted his relative who inquired if he had outstanding debt. Investigation revealed an unknown using the cousin’s name and social security number had made fraudulent purchases and created unpaid debt. Cousin was told by legal counsel hired to represent him that there were approximately 20 other outstanding cases of fraud using his name in New Jersey.
