    A Shawnee man who was arrested driving a stolen vehicle and then gave authorities his brother’s name upon arrest and book-in to jail has been formally charged.
    Cody Chawana Pahdocony, 31, is charged in Pottawatomie County District Court with felonies of possession of a stolen vehicle, unlawful possession of a controlled drug with intent to distribute, conspiracy to deliver CDS, as well as misdemeanors of unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia and obstructing an officer.
    Charges in the case are the result of a stolen vehicle recovered earlier this month during a traffic stop.
    An investigation began with police tracking a Shawnee woman’s stolen car through a device installed as part of an insurance company’s safe driver program, which located the vehicle on GPS in the 1100 block of North Philadelphia.
    Shawnee Patrol Officer Beau Bohuslavicky responded to that area and found the vehicle in a driveway of a residence, where he noticed two men in the front yard who quickly turned away and began walking.
    Officer Cody Gibson, in an unmarked vehicle, also responded and began surveillance of the area. After about 45 minutes, he noticed a man open the driver’s side door and enter the vehicle before leaving southbound in it on Philadelphia Street. Officer Gibson followed the vehicle until two marked police units arrived and conducted a traffic stop at Louisa and Burns streets.
    “Both occupants of the vehicle were ordered out at gunpoint,” the report shows. Both were read Miranda Rights and agreed to talk to officers at the scene, the report shows.
    Police found a container in the driver’s pants pocket with five oblong pills wrapped in plastic, for which he told officers the pills were Xanax and that he had a prescription, but he couldn’t give a doctor’s name, the report shows.
    The report shows the driver, Cody Pahdocony, who allegedly told officers he didn’t know the car was stolen, changed his story concerning two different people from which he borrowed the car.
    While questioning the passenger, officers learned Pahdocony was throwing items in the back seat of the vehicle at the time of the traffic stop.
    Police found a glass smoking pipe in the back seat, along with a zipper case with 10 baggies inside that all contained a white crystal substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine, according to the report, although Pahdocony advised police the items were not his.
    Pahdocony initially gave police his brother’s name and was booked into jail under the false name; jail records and police reports were later corrected.
    Pahdocony remains jailed in the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center on $25,000 bond; his next court date hasn’t yet been scheduled.
