Minden police say a Minden man allegedly found the car of his dreams but took the vehicle on one final, unauthorized, test drive that began with a trip through a locked gate and ended with the driver in the parish lockup.

Mikguel Jakydriek Stanley, a 21-year-old resident of the 400 block of W.R. Reeder St., is charged with property damage greater than $1,500, Minden Chief of Police Steve Cropper said. Bond has been set at $10,000.

“He had been trying for quite some time to obtain a loan for the car at a dealership in town but had apparently been unsuccessful in getting the money,” Cropper said. “And we were told he would test drive the car frequently.”

Cropper said Stanley came to the Industrial Drive dealership Dec. 20 claiming to have finally obtained financing for the vehicle. A check by the dealership reportedly showed he did not have the money.
After a brief argument, Cropper said, Stanley left the dealership.

“When he left, he somehow managed to leave with the keys to the car,” Cropper said. “He came back later that night and drove the vehicle through a fence and gate at the rear of the dealership, severely damaging the gate and damaging the vehicle.”

Cropper said Lt. Keith King Jr., Lt. Richard Cooper and Capt. Danny Weaver found Stanley in the vehicle at his residence Dec. 23. He was booked on the warrant and transferred to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
