Arrests Made after Stolen Car Spotted

KSAL StaffAugust 2, 2016

An early morning call to police prompts the arrest of two Salina men.

According to Captain Mike Sweeney, officers were sent to the 700 block of N. 5th Street just before 1:30am Tuesday, after a woman saw someone driving away in her 2000 Subaru.

Patricia Harrington told officers that the thief also smashed a window on her 1995 Chevy pickup that was parked in front of her home.

A short time later, an officer on patrol spotted the car in the 700 block of S. 2nd Street and arrested 20-year-old Justin Howard on charges of theft and criminal damage to property.

Passenger, Brandon Carpenter, 18 was arrested on drug related charges after officers found a marijuana pipe and drug paraphernalia in his backpack.

Police say the Subaru, which is valued at $3,000 was not damaged and that the owner had left the keys in the vehicle.
