Two Parkville residents who rode in a stolen car and allegedly attempted to resist officers were charged with tampering in the second degree, resisting a lawful stop and possession of a controlled substance.
At about 11:30 a.m. on Monday, July 6, twenty-year-old Justin Carroll and nineteen-year-old Clarrisa Call were allegedly observed exiting a silver Ford F-150 in the parking lot of Hyatt Place at 7600 NW 97th Terrace in Kansas City.
Detectives who were attempting to disrupt any unwanted activities at the hotel noticed the driver speed into the parking lot and proceed to back up, perhaps attempting to conceal the rear license plate. The driver entered the hotel, while Carroll and Call hung out in the parking lot.
When police ran the Missouri license plate number, they discovered it was registered to an alternative vehicle.
Before long, the driver left the Hyatt Place and returned to the vehicle, where Carroll and Call were waiting. Police followed the vehicle as it headed eastbound on 97th Street Terrace to North Congress Avenue.
According to court documents, after the driver noticed a marked patrol vehicle at a nearby intersection, the driver picked up speed and attempted to elude police. Detectives located the vehicle parked near the Marine Corp Recruiting Station off NW Prairie View Road.
Carroll and Call were spotted nearby and taken into custody. Police say Call flung a glass pipe against the cement sidewalk when they attempted to arrest her in an effort to destroy evidence. Carroll was carrying a set of brass knuckles in his pocket, authorities say.
Court documents say the driver could not be located. A camouflage backpack, which contained .01 grams of methamphetamine, was also recovered at the scene, according to the allegations.
When police notified the truck’s owner out of Liberty, the victim told police he had surveillance video of a vehicle dropping off the suspects the evening his truck was stolen.
Court documents say the truck’s interior had been ripped apart, but multiple items belonging to the truck owner were still inside, including a Royals tote bag and bungee cords.
Call and Carroll remain inside the Platte County Detention Center on a $20,000 bond.
