Stolen vehicle suspects arrested
Submitted By Sgt. John Torrez, Milpitas PD
On February 22, 2013, at 10:21 a.m., a Milpitas Police Officer saw two people driving in a 1999 Honda Civic and park in the parking lot of Kentucky Fried Chicken at 73 S. Main Street. The two occupants left the vehicle and walked into the nearby business. The officer did a random check on the vehicle's license plate and found the license plate had been reported stolen earlier the same morning.
Both occupants were detained and further investigation led to the discovery that the vehicle was stolen from San Jose. Officers arrested one of the suspects, a male 17-year old juvenile and San Jose resident, was in possession of ecstasy pills and drug paraphernalia. Roy Alexander Spotwood, also of San Jose, was arrested for auto theft, possession of stolen property, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of burglary tools. Spotwood was booked at the Santa Clara County Main Jail.
