Suspected thief arrested when victim spots his stolen SUV
A 33-year-old man was arrested in Mountain View on Wednesday after the owner of a stolen vehicle spotted him in it, police said.
Joon Kim was arrested after police received a call at about 1:45 p.m. from a resident who said he had spotted his stolen Land Rover Discovery drive past him on El Camino Real near The Americana.
The vehicle had been reported stolen in late December and officers eventually spotted it near state Highway 237 at El Camino Real, according to police.
The vehicle was pulled over on Mountain View Avenue just north of El Camino Real and Kim, a transient, was arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property, vehicle theft and parole violation, police said.
