A $1,500 bond was set Monday for a White Hall man who was allegedly driving a stolen car when he was stopped by an Arkansas State Trooper Saturday.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge Quenton Clark, 25, with theft by receiving.
Trooper Brandon Porter reported that he stopped a Lexus on Interstate 530 at mile marker 19 Saturday at 9:42 p.m. for speeding and for displaying a fictitious license plate.
Clark, who was driving, was not able to give Porter registration paperwork on the car, saying that he had just gotten it and had not had the license plate registration transferred to the car.
Porter reported that the car was registered to Clark but had been reported stolen in Little Rock on April 27; a check with Little Rock police showed that the case was still active.
The owner of the car had told Little Rock police that he had taken the car to Clark to be repaired and Clark had forged title paperwork to gain access to the vehicle.
Little Rock police also reported that there was an active warrant issued in Pulaski County for Clark on charges of forgery and theft of property.
Clark said in court that he would hire his own attorney.
