On Sunday morning, Officer Nick Houchens saw 20 year old James Keys on Frazier Street on a moped identical to one that had been reported stolen on Saturday. According to the citation, the moped was weaving and driving close to the sidewalk and when Keys pulled into a driveway, the officer pulled in behind him. Upon approach of the moped, Officer Houchens says the ignition appeared to be tampered with. Keys said that despite the VIN number on the moped matching the stolen one, he had bought it a year ago.
Keys was arrested and charged with Careless Driving and Receiving Stolen Property Under $10,000.
He was lodged in the Barren County Detention Center.
