_ Police have charged a man with stealing a truck after they came across a suspected stolen vehicle during the investigation of the shooting at the Cascades Motel on Friday night. According to an affidavit of complaint, Jason Lebron Oliver, 39, of a Cleveland address, was charged with Theft over $1,000. He is due to appear in East Ridge Municipal Court on April 26. The report states that in mid-March L&K Auto in Rossville reported that a 1996 Nissan Pathfinder was missing from their lot. The vehicle was described as white with aftermarket roof racks and running boards. On Friday night, officers spotted a white Pathfinder parked near a room at the Cascades. The vehicle matched the description of the stolen Pathfinder except the running boards had been removed. Officers tried to determine the VIN number of the vehicle, but a piece of paper in the dash was blocking the identification. The report states that officers knocked on the motel door and Oliver came out. Oliver said that he would allow police to check out the VIN number. That number came back to the stolen vehicle from L&K. After officers read Oliver his Miranda warning, the report states that the man told police that his Pathfinder had been stolen and that he saw this vehicle on the L&K lot sometime later. Oliver said that he took the vehicle after finding the keys inside. The report states that Oliver said the roof racks and running boards were in Trenton, Ga., but he wouldn’t tell police the location. Employees from L&K came and secured the vehicle.
