While booking Weaver, deputies ran the VIN number of the Nissan Sedan because it did not have permanent license plates. The vehicle turned out to be stolen out of Sacramento. Mr. Weaver had originally stated that the vehicle did not belong to him and it belonged to a Kimberly Burnam. Burnam confirmed the story and the Nissan had been released to her when Weaver was arrested.
