Man claims car he stole was car jacked from him

GRAND BLANC TWP. — Ryan Windus, 23, of Grand Blanc was charged with car theft and larceny. Windus went to the home of his children’s grandparents to do laundry. At about 2 a.m. on June 25, the children’s grandparents reported their 2005 Honda missing along with a computer and Nintendo WII game system. Windus was nowhere to be found.

At about 9:40 p.m. that same day, police located Windus at 755 E. Grand Blanc Rd. Windus admitted to taking the car and computer, but denied taking the WII game system.

Windus said he took the vehicle so he could drive to Flint for vicodin, but said the car was stolen on the way. He said he stopped to ask four males if they had any vicodin, and the men forced him out of his vehicle and drove off.

Windus was taken to the Genesee County Jail.

The suspect, 28, was pulled over after police witnessed her 1998 blue Chevy pickup truck traveling erratically in the 5000 block of Dort Highway.

The suspect smelled of alcohol and had glassy eyes. She admitted to having head two drinks, but said her erratic driving was due to operating her cell phone.
