Police officers recently arrested a Dover NJ man who allegedly stole a neighbor’s car.
The suspect, a 30-year-old man from Dover New Jersey, has been accused of unlawfully taking a 1999 Honda Accord from his neighbor’s yard. The suspect allegedly called a towing company and had a tow truck take the vehicle away.
The car was moved to a scrapyard, where the suspect allegedly sold it for $100 in cash.
The rightful owner of the motor vehicle later noticed that his car was missing, so he contacted the Dover Police Department. Detectives subsequently conducted an investigation into the alleged theft. Police ultimately decided that enough evidence existed to place the suspect under arrest.
The suspect has been charged with theft by unlawful taking.
After being placed under arrest and charged, the suspect was released on his own recognizance. He will need to submit to weekly drug testing as long as the criminal charges remain pending.
