Officers assigned to district B2 were in the area of 135 Dudley Street when they observed a vehicle with an expired registration. The officer’s became aware that the vehicle registration was expired after doing a check with CJIS at which time they conducted a traffic stop, had a conversation with Jermaine Seams the identified operator of the vehicle.
Both Seams and Brown-Carter were advised by officers that the vehicle would be towed. As Brown-Carter excited the vehicle he advised officers that he had a warrant and was taken into custody.
