A man is now behind Ada County bars,  facing several felony charges after he was found sleeping in a stolen car.

Garden City police say a passerby reported a suspicious vehicle on the 8000 block of Atwater Drive.

Investigators then found 36-year-old Jason Hatch and an adult female sleeping inside the car which was listed as stolen from Middleton.

 A stolen firearm, several stolen credit cards, a stolen computer, and illegal narcotics were also found after a search of the car was conducted.

The female has been released without charges at this time, but Hatch will sit before a judge on Monday at 1:30 p.m.
