A Plymouth woman is in the Marshall County Jail after she took a vehicle without the owner’s permission.

On Friday morning, March 1st, at approximately 6:30, officers from the Plymouth Police Department responded to the 300 block of Conger Street after receiving a report that a vehicle was taken without permission. 

The vehicle was quickly located near Madison and Plum Streets, where Officer Schieber conducted a traffic stop. 

The suspect and driver of the vehicle was identified as Stacey J. Griffin, 47, of the 700 block of North Walnut Street in Plymouth.

During the officer’s investigation, it was determined that Griffin was intoxicated and operating a vehicle at more than three times the legal limit.  Griffin was taken into custody and transported to the Marshall County Jail for pending criminal charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated over .15, unauthorized control of a motor vehicle, and operator never licensed. 

Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is a mere allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
