Harris County Pct. 4 Constable Mark Herman’s office is reporting the arrest of a Liberty County man on a charge of Unauthorized Use of a Vehicle. The driver is identified as Joseph Nunan, 38.
Nunan’s arrest took place on Oct. 20, 2021, when a Pct. 4 corporal conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle in the 7500 block of FM 1960.
“During the course of the traffic stop, it was discovered that the vehicle displayed a fictitious license plate and that the vehicle was reported as stolen,” according to a statement from the Pct. 4 Constable’s Office.
After his arrest, Nunan was booked into the Harris County Jail. His bond was set at $2,500 out of the 230th State District Court in Harris County.
According to Nunan, the circumstances around the case require an explanation. He says he borrowed the vehicle from a co-worker who was unaware that he had purchased a stolen vehicle and then loaned it to him. Nunan plans to challenge the charge in court.
