LOGAN — A vehicle tracking system helped lead North Park Police officers to a stolen vehicle in North Logan Monday night. Mohammed Aldaheri was arrested on a third-degree felony charge of stealing a vehicle after police found him and the vehicle near Airport Road.
North Park Police Sgt. John Seamons said the Aldaheri originally rented the vehicle from an agency near the Salt Lake Airport and then failed to return it.
“The vehicle contained the On Star system on it,” said Seamons. “As it traveled through our area the On Star system shut the vehicle off.”
“The subject that was driving the vehicle then called On Star to find out why it wasn’t going,” said Seamons. “At that point On Star got a GPS location and contacted Cache Dispatch and they sent proper officers that made contact with the individual.”
Seamons said Aldaheri was taken to the police department and interviewed by officers. He was then arrested and booked into the Cache County Jail. Bail has been set at $5000.
Seamons said it’s odd that Aldaheri would call “On Star” and report the car wasn’t working when he had broken the rental conditions.
