KSAL StaffJune 22, 2017

A Salina man has been arrested after he stole a vehicle and credit card from an acquaintance and subsequently crashed the stolen car.

Salina Police arrested the subject after he wrecked a 2005 Ford Escape and used the credit card of the owner of the vehicle to tow the vehicle.

The wreck was a single card accident that occurred at the 2200 block of S. 9th at 12:32 A.M. on Wednesday morning.

Sgt. Feldman tells KSAL News that Joshua Christopher, 23 year-old, from Salina, was arrested for stealing the vehicle and credit card of Nicholas Maine, who also lives in Salina and is an acquaintance of Christopher.

Later on Wednesday, Feldman says that Christopher was subsequently arrested at 512 Woodlawn, which is also the home of Maine, and booked into jail on the charges of felony and misnomer theft and criminal use of a financial card.

The value of the Escape is $4,000 and the unauthorized use of the credit card was $160.
