Carmel operating a motor vehicle in the area of 9th and Cherry Street.  The arresting officer knew the suspect was driving on a suspended driver's license and initiated a vehicle stop.  During the traffic stop it was discovered that Beath had a female in the trunk of the vehicle.  The female was identified as 30 year old Nicole I. Kimpling of Mt.
