It Takes a Thief to Catch a Thief
They say it takes a thief to catch thief, and that proved to true when two drivers in separate stolen vehicles were arrested following a crash in Newberg, Oregon over this past weekend.
It happened on Sunday morning, according to police who tell KPTV they were responding to a report of a stolen Toyota Land Cruiser.
Cops located the stolen vehicle minutes later, which led to a chase through town when the suspect, a 27-year-old man, attempted to elude police, then crashed into an occupied Buick Regal.
The driver in the Toyota was arrested for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, attempting to elude police, third-degree assault, reckless driving and other related crimes.
It was then, say police, they learned that the Buick was reported stolen three weeks ago.
The driver in the stolen Buick, a 25-year-old woman, was found to be under the influence and was arrested.
She now faces charges of driving under the influence of intoxicants and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
