An early Sunday morning traffic stop in Freer resulted in the arrest of a Dallas man who was charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle, according to police records.
Reports show Carlos Juarez, 22, was driving a 2005 Dodge pick-up truck about 7:11 a.m. along Norton Street and Police Chief John Spillers pulled him over for a traffic violation. "He said that he was enroute to Zapata but something didn't seem right," Spillers said.
"He presented a Texas offender's card to me as I.D. - he didn't have a valid Texas driver's license."
Spillers said a check was then run on the vehicle which was confirmed stolen from Tarleton, Texas.
Juarez was arrested and taken to the Duval County Jail with bond set at $20,000.
