A Hopkinsville couple was arrested Thursday afternoon for allegedly stealing a car from Truck Country Auto Sales on Walnut Street.
Arrest citations for 33-year old Jonathan Lewis and 31-year old Mia Taylor of Hopkinsville say Taylor dropped Lewis off at the car lot a little before 11 a.m. and he asked to test drive a 2010 Chevy Impala.
Lewis did not return with the car and police were able to run the license plate of the vehicle Taylor was driving to identify the couple. Employees at Truck Country were also able to positively identify photos of the couple as being the perpetrators.
Lewis and Taylor were located a few hours later at Taylor’s home on Short 19th Street and they were arrested for felony auto theft. Taylor told officers they took the car back because it belonged to her and that she had the title. The car had a different license plate on it when it was located by HPD.
