Warrant arrest leads to stolen license plate

A Ruston man was arrested for possessing stolen property Tuesday when Lincoln Parish deputies arrested him on a warrant for domestic abuse battery.

Sheriff’s deputies located Justin Dane Pendarvis, 28, at his residence and arrested him on a warrant charging him with domestic abuse battery with strangulation and child endangerment.

While at the residence, license plates on the vehicles were recorded. One Louisiana license plate displayed on a 2014 Nissan Rouge was reported stolen to the Ruston Police Department the previous week. Pendarvis later told a deputy the Nissan was not supposed to have a license plate on it. He said he let someone borrow the Nissan but refused to identify that person when asked how the plate got on the vehicle.

Pendarvis was booked at the Lincoln Parish Detention Center on the warrant and for possession of stolen things. His bail amount was not available.
