Victim reports stolen license after being notified of ticket she didn't get

JONESBORO, Ark. – Imagine getting a letter from a court system saying you owed money for a ticket you never even received.

That’s what a Jonesboro woman said happened to her in an incident report filed with JPD on Friday.

At 3:10 p.m. on April 21, the 24-year-old female came to JPD and said she got a letter in the mail from the Clarksville Tennessee Court System stating she had an unpaid ticket from April 9. She said she didn’t get that ticket but she did lose her license in the weeks prior to that.

Now, she seems to know where the license ended up.

Someone driving a 2001 Nissan Altima, with unregistered tags, was evidently pulled over in Tennessee and used the young lady’s stolen license as her own. Somehow, it passed to the officer as her own and the ticket was issued. The 24-year-old said she has never owned an Altima.

The suspect could face misdemeanors for theft of property and criminal impersonation in the second degree.

Anyone with information may call the Jonesboro Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division at (870) 935-6710 or Crime Stoppers at (870) 935-7867 (935-STOP.)
