Pair charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle


Scott L. Thomas, 31, of 31388 Town Line Road, Philadelphia, was charged by Watertown police on Wednesday night at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building with unauthorized use of a vehicle.

The incident is related to the arrest of Shawn M. Desormeau, 33, of 202 N. Pleasant St., Upper Apt., who was charged by Watertown police Tuesday evening at the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building with third-degree unauthorized use of a vehicle.

Police said Mr. Desormeau borrowed an SUV without the owner’s consent to “participate in an illegal drug transaction” on April 12. He was given an appearance ticket for Watertown City Court.

Police said Mr. Thomas did not have permission to be a passenger in the car. He was being held at the jail on an unrelated matter, pending arraignment on the new charge, police said.
