TEMECULA – A Wildomar man suspected of driving a stolen Honda Civic in Temecula remained behind bars today, records show.
Kelly Joe Farran, 35, was arrested and booked Monday for suspicion of possessing stolen property, driving with a suspended license and drug-related charges, according to online jail records. He remained jailed in lieu of $5,000 bail.
Farran was arrested when a sheriff’s deputy on patrol did a routine license plate check on the sedan that was reported stolen to the Kern County Sheriff’s Department on Dec. 15.
Farran was allegedly seen driving the vehicle alone on Old Town Front Street and Rancho California Road, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. Back-up was called when deputies pulled the Honda Civic over.
Illegal prescription drugs as well as drug paraphernalia were also found in the car, sheriff’s officials said.
