A Minton Street couple was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle after Buffalo police stopped them in what turned out to be a speeding rental car on Bailey Avenue near Langfield Drive about 5:30 a.m. today.

Jorrel Ward, 27, and Tyshawn A. Johnson, 26, were both charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Ward, who allegedly admitted he was an unlicensed driver and was not listed on the car’s rental agreement, was also charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, disorderly conduct, speeding and driving without a license.

Johnson was charged with criminal possession of stolen property after a stolen credit card was found as she was frisked. When the already-handcuffed Johnson began fighting with police and trying to flee she was also charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing governmental administration.
