Man Steals Semi To Impress Girlfriend But Ends Up In Jail
West Monroe, Louisiana – A 21-year-old Monroe man was arrested after he allegedly stole a semi to impress his girlfriend.
West Monroe Police said Dominique Jefferson was arrested on March 24 after he stole a 2010 Freightliner from MTM Trucking Company.
According to officials, Jefferson said he swiped the truck, which was pulling a 2010 Silver Cement dump trailer, to take his girlfriend for a ride.
Police say Jefferson said he intended on returning the truck later that same day.
Before he was able to return the semi, police saw Jefferson, who does not have a CDL, struggling to operate the vehicle along Mitchell Street.
Investigators say the trailer tires were locking up causing long skid marks to be left along the road.
Police stopped Jefferson and he allegedly confessed the entire plot.
Jefferson was booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center on a $10,000 bond and charged with one count theft of a motor vehicle.
