LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - On September 28, 2009 at around 2:17 a.m., Longview Police Officer M. Dobbs located a Dodge pick-up truck traveling northbound in the 3800 block of Pine Tree at a high rate of speed.

Officer Dobbs conducted a traffic stop and found that the driver, Michael Whitaker, had outstanding warrants for his arrest. Whitaker was then arrested and found to be in possession of a driver's license and several social security cards that had all been previously reported stolen earlier this month. Officer Dobbs also located several tires, wheels and a tool box in the bed of the Dodge pick-up that she discovered had been stolen from Williams Collision Repair at 102 Bill Owens Parkway earlier this morning.

Whitaker was charged with the two outstanding warrants, theft (State jail felony) and the unlawful possession of identifying information (State jail felony). The passenger in the truck, James Todd Harrington, was arrested and charged with theft (State jail felony).

Officers returned the stolen property, valued at $2100.00, to Williams Collision Repair and learned the suspects had cut a padlock off a locked gate at the business. Both suspects were booked into the Gregg County Jail.
