Pest Ride

Man charged with theft of multiple cars


Somerset —

After this, the Fairway owner discovered the cars were missing and contacted SPD. Once officers found the Sebring, they made a startling discovery — Perry had been arrested by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department for DUI only days before, at about 2 a.m. on December 30.
At that time, the suspect had been driving a Chevrolet Cobalt. Further investigation revealed that the Cobalt matched the description of a vehicle reported stolen by McAlpin-Hall Motors near light no. 11 on South U.S. 27.
Smith said that owners didn’t realize the vehicle was missing under after the holidays, but then reported it stolen. So officers knew there was a missing Cobalt; they checked the numbers on the car Perry was driving against the missing one, and found a match, said Smith.
“This case had some twists and turns,” noted Smith. 
There was no significant damage to the vehicles, according to Smith, and no apparent connection between Perry and either of the two car dealerships.
SPD Det. Chris Gates charged Perry with third-degree burglary, two counts of theft by unlawful taking under $10,000, and receiving stolen property under $10,000. 
The case will be presented to the Pulaski Grand Jury.
