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Lewis was on probation in a 2011 case in which he was charged with operating a vehicle while his driver’s license was revoked as a habitual traffic offender.

    There is much to be said for punctuality.

    I am glad he did not have an appointment in europe.

    There IS an extensive record implying he doesn’t play well with others.

    Give him time, lots of time to develop.

    Taking the ECAT would’ve been the smart thing to do.

    Even if his mother knew he had an appointment, its not her responsibility. It states that he is 35, time to grow up and be responsible for yourself.

    Sounds like a considerate young man…taking a shower before going to see his probation officer on a stolen motorcycle.

    I doubt that his probation office is located on Booker and Callaway.

    Well he was trying to do the right thing, i feel sort of bad for him. I have a feeling his mother knew he needed to be there
