BALTIMORE — Baltimore Police arrested a man for vehicle theft Wednesday in West Baltimore.

The department said, at just before 4 p.m. an Auto Theft Task Force Unit was recovering a stolen vehicle in the 1900 block of W. Baltimore Street. During the recovery, their License Plate Readers alerted them to another stolen vehicle that had just passed them by.

Officers followed the car and requested Fox Trot for assistance. Fox Trot followed a black 2006 Nissan Sentra to Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard at Saratoga Street.

Officials said, RATT units were able to box the vehicle in and removed a 36-year-old man.

He was arrested and will be charged with stolen auto as well as being in possession of stolen tags.

According to detectives, that not only was the vehicle stolen. The tags were stolen from another vehicle and didn't belong on the Nissan Sentra.
