“On Wednesday May 4th at around 2 in the afternoon Sgt. Donaldson was driving in the area of Wigwam road in Jamestown when his patrol vehicle was nearly struck by an erratic driver, driving a classic Ford pickup truck.

Sgt. Donaldson conducted a traffic stop and contacted the driver of the vehicle, who provided the sergeant with a false name. While speaking to the driver a record check of the truck’s license plate found the truck was reported stolen.

Deputies on scene had the man exit the truck, and he was hand-cuffed and searched. Deputies found drug paraphernalia in the man’s pants pockets. Deputies continued to investigate and discovered the man’s name was Zachary Richardson, 22-years-old.

A record check of Richardson found he was on probation for vehicle theft and had a felony warrant for his arrest.
Richardson was arrested and booked at the Dambacher Detention Center on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle, taking a vehicle without the owner’s consent, possession of drug paraphernalia, providing a false name to a peace officer and his felony warrant.”
