Police solve car theft case when vehicle drives by
LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) -- Officers in northern Idaho didn't have much trouble resolving a stolen vehicle case after the missing car drove by while police were taking a report from the owner.
The Lewiston Tribune reports Dianne E. Blazer of Lewiston noticed her 2003 Nissan Sentra had been stolen overnight and was talking with police at 9:30 a.m. Thursday when an officer noticed the car driving down the street.
The officer ran after the vehicle and ordered the driver to stop. Chon E. Tackett of Coeur d'Alene told police he didn't remember how he got the vehicle and was trying to find a friend's house.
Tackett, who is 30, was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle and driving under the influence.
