Anderson a passenger in the car when arrested had not claimed that he did not know the car was stolen but Only that there was no proof he was in Possession of the car according to the background on the Case.

A Anderson was not merely a passive occupant who did not know the car was stolen but rather he was actively engaged in using the stolen vehicle in furtherance of a criminal venture for his personal Benefit a Miller said. A thus based on All the evidence Andersons joint use of the vehicle with the Driver constituted Possession of the car within the meaning of the Law a Miller said. Millers written opinion did not identify the Driver of the 1989 Pontiac trans am whose owner Velyne Zumm testified at the trial that she had left it parked in her driveway on july 20 in Good condition. Zumm said she did not see the car again until july 22, when she discovered the door lock and trunk lock had been punched out the steering column torn apart and the stereo and spare tire taken out Miller said. Zumm said she found in the car several packages of meat and two screwdrivers that did not belong to her Miller said.
