Mom: Son Stole Motorcycle For Appointment With Probation Officer
May 30, 2012
A Molino man has been charged with stealing his mother’s motorcycle, allegedly so he would not miss an appointment with his probation officer.
Tavares Antwan Lewis, age 35 of Barth Road, was arrested on a felony vehicle grand theft charge for allegedly stealing a 1982 Honda Goldwing. Lewis remained in the Escambia County Jail without bond early Wednesday morning on additional charge of violation of probation.
Lewis’ mother told deputies that she returned home to find the motorcycle missing and that someone had entered her home and used her shower. She told deputies that she believed it to be Lewis because he had an appointment on the date of the incident with his probation officer. The victim also reported seeing Lewis riding her motorcycle in the area of Booker and Calloway streets in Cantonment.
According to court records, Lewis was on probation in a 2011 case in which he was charged with operating a vehicle while his driver’s license was revoked as a habitual traffic offender.
