2 area men arrested on warrants
DEERFIELD — A police check on a suspicious motor vehicle parked at The Wok Restaurant early Friday morning resulted in two Greenfield men being arrested on warrants for motor vehicle violations out of Greenfield, Montague and by the state police.
At 3 a.m., officer Brian Ravish investigated a vehicle occupied by four people in the rear parking lot of the Chinese food restaurant on Greenfield Road. He discovered that two of the four had warrants out for their arrest.
Police arrested Timothy Thornton, 20, of Greenfield, on two warrants issued on nine separate charges.
The first warrant was issued by state police in December on charges of number plate violation, uninsured motor vehicle, possession of an open container of alcohol and an unregistered motor vehicle.
The second warrant was issued by the Montague Police Department in January on similar charges of an uninsured motor vehicle, possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle, an unregistered motor vehicle and number plate violation.
In addition, police arrested Jordan Markham, 23, of Greenfield on a warrant involving charges of operating a motor vehicle with a revoked license. The warrant was issued by Greenfield District Court on charges brought by Greenfield Police, according to Deerfield Police Sgt. Michael Krusiewski.
No new charges were issued by Deerfield police.
The two men were arraigned in Greenfield District Court Friday afternoon, according to police.
