A Prescott man is facing up to six years in prison and fines up to $10,000 for allegedly stealing a vehicle and fleeing in it.
Timothy A. Chambers, 22, posted a $5,000 signature bond July 12 in Pierce County Circuit Court on a felony operating a motor vehicle without owner’s consent charge. Another felony operating a motor vehicle without owner’s consent charge was filed Aug. 4, in a separate case. An arrest warrant has been issued for Chambers.
According to the complaint: At 12:48 a.m., a Hastings police officer contacted Prescott police to obtain information on Chambers, or as he called himself, “Dylan Fawcet.” The officer had pulled Chambers over in a Cool Air Mechanicals truck and said he would call back.
About 12 minutes later, a man in a truck flagged police down near Wacota and Jefferson streets and said he’d just been notified by Hastings police that they had his stolen vehicle. Before the officer could question him, he took off, presumably to Hastings. While the Prescott officer was trying to figure out what was going on, a Hastings police officer called again and said he had Chambers in custody for stealing a Prescott vehicle.
When searching the vehicle, police found a handgun lock box with the cord cut, a backpack containing handgun ammunition, and a key for a development near Northern Lights Drive, all of which did not belong to the vehicle owner.
The employee who had flagged down Prescott police told officers that when he arrived home from work at 9:50 p.m., he parked the truck in the driveway. He woke up at 1:07 a.m. when Hastings police called him and told him his truck was stolen but recovered. The only items taken from his truck were gas cards. Chambers is scheduled to appear in court at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 26 for a preliminary hearing.
