Excuse me officer, can you give me a jump start

Gordon Raymond was allegedly driving a stolen truck when its battery died at a Stuart business around 4:00 a.m. as an alarm sounded, reports Will Greenlee in his Off the Beat blog for TCPalm.com in Stuart.
Raymond, who apparently decided to swim against the current, approached a deputy dispatched to the scene, telling the officer his truck’s battery needed a jump start, records show.
When the officer ran the truck’s license, dispatchers reported the pickup had been stolen, according to his arrest affidavit.
When Raymond’s Craigslist excuse reportedly tanked, he eventually ‘fessed up and got a tow — to the pokey.
