A police ‘tag reader’ alert leads to the arrest of a Salina man.
Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that an officer on patrol followed a stolen vehicle with a stolen dealer’s tag into a Salina storage lot on Sunday afternoon after information from the tag reader came back as a stolen licence plate.
Police say the dealer’s tag was stolen from Ace Auto, 522 N. Santa Fe on March 18th, while the 2006 Chevy Silverado was stolen from Ferco Rental, 264 S. Broadway over the weekend.
Once inside the lot at Salina Mini Storage, 404 N. 9th Street, police arrested the driver, 25-year-old Joshua Mudd on multiple charges of burglary, theft, possession of stolen property and driving with a suspended licence.
A passenger inside the truck, 23-year-old Jordan Hamilton was also wanted on an unrelated warrant.
