SOUTH WEBER — A man was booked into the Davis County Jail on Monday after he was spotted driving a stolen car.
The incident started about 9 a.m. when a South Weber man saw the suspect in the stolen car, a Subaru Impreza WRX.
The South Weber man recognized the vehicle and recognized it as the one stolen from his co-worker in Roy the previous weekend, according to Davis County Sheriff’s Sgt. Susan Poulsen.
The witness called the vehicle’s owner, who then called the Davis County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies found the vehicle parked at a home in South Weber.
The suspect left the house and asked the deputies why there were there.
He told them he had bought the Subaru off of KSL’s website, but he didn’t have a bill of sale or title and didn’t know the name of the person he bought it from, Poulsen said.
Deputies also allegedly found that the vehicle identification number was missing from the dash.
However, the VIN number was readable on the door and the car checked out as having been stolen.
“The moral of the story is don’t steal and it will keep you of out jail,” Poulsen said.
