Police: Man asks friend for ride, then steals car
Authorities say the incident began when Adrian Mitt, of 116 Byrd Lane 8 in Hahnville, asked his friend for a ride to the Shell Station on Highway 90. While the friend was inside making a purchase, Mitt fled with her vehicle and cell phone, according to the police report.
Mitt, who had two warrants out for his arrest, was spotted a short time later by sheriff’s deputies. They attempted to pull Mitt over, but he led them on a short chase before leaping out of the vehicle and escaping on foot, according to Sgt. Dwayne LaGrange, a spokesman for the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office.
“The deputies were unable to apprehend him at that time, but we got a report that Mitt had headed back to his home,” LaGrange said. “When deputies arrived, they found Mitt trying to escape out of a second-floor window but they were able to capture him.”
LaGrange said that Mitt was in possession of a vehicle that was reported stolen out of Jefferson Parish.
“Deputies also discovered marijuana in the home and several children were located inside the residence,” LaGrange said.
Mitt was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, reckless operation, hit and run, resisting arrest by flight, suspended driver’s license, possession of marijuana, five counts of the illegal use of a controlled substance in the presence of a minor, possession of a stolen auto and theft under $300.
