ORIGINAL STORY:

SETH — A Boone County man faces charges after police say he was driving a stolen truck and is a felon who was in possession of a firearm.

Adam Lee Ceravolo, 32, of Seth, was charged with receiving or transferring stolen vehicle, felon in possession of a firearm, driving suspended, no motor vehicle inspection, improper registration, no insurance and defective equipment after a traffic stop by the West Virginia State Police on Jan. 31.

Trooper AR Workman wrote in the criminal complaint that, while patrolling Route 3 in Seth, he pulled over a Ford Ranger with two occupants when he noticed a loud exhaust and that there was no motor vehicle inspection sticker on the truck.

The complaint further states that the accused communicated to the officer that he had no insurance and through radio communication, the trooper learned that the registration for the truck had no matching records and that the vehicle was registered as stolen from Cedar Grove in Kanawha County.

The report further stated that the trooper asked the accused to step out of the vehicle and when he did, the officer identified a silver handgun lying beside the drivers side seat in plain view.

The trooper learned that the accused had a 2010 felony conviction for daytime burglary and that his drivers license had been suspended for unpaid citations. The accused was arrested and charged.

As of press time, Ceravolo was not held at Southwestern Regional Jail and bond-related information was unavailable.
