At this time, the officers saw a 1991 Toyota Camry traveling west on Myrtle Street. Both officers recognized the car as stolen because they filled out the report on October 13, 2017.

The officers turned their marked police cruiser around and began to follow the Toyota. While following the car they re-entered the registration plate to confirm that it was still listed as stolen. The car did come back as a stolen. At this time the officers activated their emergency lights and stopped the vehicle in the area of 52 High Street.

Officers approached the driver and asked for his license. The driver, Saphirak, stated that he did not have a license. Officers checked the license status and it came back as revoked.

Saphirak was removed from the vehicle and placed under arrest.

A search incident to arrest of Saphirak produced a small metal breath mint container. Inside the container officers discovered eight small clear plastic baggies. Two baggies contained some residue of Crystal Methamphetamine, two other baggies contained large crystals of Methamphetamine, a Class B substance, while the remaining baggies contained pills that are believed to be Ecstasy.

A search of the car produced a key chain that contained four alter keys that are used to breach locking mechanisms to cars.
