A Columbus couple is facing theft and drug charges after allegedly being seen on a stolen moped Tuesday morning in the area of Sixth Street and Pleasant Grove in Columbus.
Columbus Public Safety spokesperson Lt. Matt Myers says 40-year-old Angela Assmann and 28-year-old Winton Charles Zink are charged with possession of stolen property. Assmann is also being preliminarily charged with possession of meth.
Myers says the couple stole the moped from the area of 9th and Union streets around 2:30 a.m.
Witnesses told police during the original report that Assmann was the suspect that took the moped from a front yard. The couple dumped the moped in the area of 6th and Hope after the moped's owner saw them in the area.
When police arrived in the area, they both took off running and later located. They were then taken into custody and charged. Police also found a corner cut baggie on Assmann with powder in it that tested positive for meth. It was found in her pocket.
