32-year-old Tyler James Sowards was in the driver’s seat of a stolen Buick Envoy in Mapco’s parking lot on November 30th. Jesse Walker, the owner of the Buick, advised that he met Sowards on an online dating site and got a hotel room for them on November 24th. Sowards reportedly took the keys to the Buick Envoy when Walker was asleep without his consent. Walker made a report on the 24th but failed to provide proof of ownership for the Envoy. He later was able to prove ownership on November 30th, so they were able to ping his vehicle’s location, where they found Sowards with a pink bag containing crystal meth and a pipe located in a purple bag. Sowards was taken into custody for simple possession, theft of property, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
