A pair of moped drivers arrested by FPD
An equipment violation led to the arrest of a pair of Frankenmuth residents in the city last week.
On Tuesday, July 9 around 10:45pm, Frankenmuth Police Department officers on patrol stopped a 17-year-old male on a moped in the 500 block of South Main Street. The moped had a loud muffler.
The driver became verbally combative with officers. He was ticketed for the loud exhaust and started to walk his moped home. He later stopped and became verbally confrontational with officers again, shouting profanities in front of visitors. He was arrested and lodged in the Saginaw County Jail for disorderly conduct.
While the arrest was ongoing, a second moped driver, a 20-year-old Frankenmuth male, stopped across the street from the incident and was also yelling profanities in front of visitors at officers. He was also arrested and lodged in the Saginaw County Jail on the same charges.
On Saturday, July 13 around 11:40pm, officers stopped a northbound vehicle in the 4000 block of Gera Road (M-83) for an equipment violation.
The driver was a 30-year-old Saginaw female, who was traveling alone. A computer check revealed she was wanted on an outstanding warrant from the Buena Vista Police Department on a misdemeanor charge. Bond was set at $3,500 – 10-percent. She posted the 10-percent and was released from the scene, with orders to report to the Saginaw County 70th District Court on the warrant.
Earlier in the evening on July 13, officers stopped a vehicle in the 200 block of North Main Street for expired license tags.
The driver was a 25-year-old Saginaw man, traveling alone. He admitted to having an expired registration and no insurance. A computer check turned up he was wanted on an outstanding warrant for Saginaw City income tax evasion. Bond was $7,500.
He was unable to post bond, was taken into custody and lodged in the Saginaw County Jail on the income tax warrant. His vehicle was left at the scene.
