[ARCHIVED] Man Charged for Driving Vehicle Stolen in El Paso

Orlando Jacques

Police found drugs and drug paraphernalia on a man suspected of driving a stolen vehicle Tuesday morning.


Orlando R. Jacques, 29, of the 400 block of south San Pedro Street, is charged with a fourth-degree felony count of receiving or transferring a stolen motor vehicle, a fourth-degree felony count of possession of a controlled substance and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

About 11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, Las Cruces police officers located a Chevrolet Equinox, stolen Oct. 3 in El Paso, Texas, near the intersection of Lohman Avenue and Nevarez Street. A passenger of the vehicle, a woman, exited the vehicle near the intersection and walked away. The Equinox continued for a short while until Las Cruces police officers conducted a high-risk stop on the vehicle near Tornillo Street.

Jacques was the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle at the time of the stop.

Jacques told police the vehicle belonged to a friend who lives in Anthony, Texas, but he was unable to provide the friend’s last name or address. Investigators contacted the owner of the vehicle who resides in El Paso. The owner indicated she does not know Jacques and did not give him permission to be in possession of the vehicle that was reported stolen on Oct. 3.

Jacques was also found to be in possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia at the time of his arrest.

Jacques was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center where he’s initially being held without bond.
