A Homer man was arrested last Wednesday (November 27) for falsely reporting a vehicle as stolen in order to cover up being involved in a one-car rollover accident while driving his friend’s vehicle on a suspended license.
According to Homer Police, 53-year-old David Miner reported to them the day before that a vehicle he had borrowed from a friend was stolen from his driveway. Officers did confirm the friend had lent the car to Miner willingly.
Their joint investigation with state police determined he was lying in order to cover up his involvement in a one-car rollover accident on Route 81 near the Nedrow exit, from which he left the scene.
He then tried reporting the vehicle as stolen in order to conceal the vehicle damage from his friend, as well as the fact that he’d driven on a suspended license from authorities.
Eventually, Miner admitted his crimes to Homer police and will now appear in Town Court on Tuesday (December 10).
