Hinsdale police distributed the following reports June 4.

Auto theft arrest

Joesph M. Correa, 31, 531 N. Harvard Ave., Villa Park, was arrested on two counts of possession of a stolen motor vehicle and one count of unlawful use of a weapon May 22 at a gas station in Lombard.

A Porsche Macon was stolen from Bill Jacobs Land Rover and Jaguar, 336 E. Ogden Ave., May 3, according to Chief Brian King of the Hinsdale Police Department.

The investigation revealed that a prospective “customer” had switched FOBs during test drive earlier in the day. The customer provided fictitious identification and there were stolen plates on the vehicle he drove to the dealership. Hinsdale detectives eventually were able to develop a suspect in that case, which led to surveillance and the arrest on May 22, King said.

Hinsdale detectives subsequently executed search warrants on a home and a garage in Lombard. During the course of the investigation, detectives recovered two stolen vehicles, the Porsche Macon and a Jeep Wrangler stolen out of dealership in Schaumburg on May 22. A firearm was also recovered from offender at the time of the arrest. His court date is June 24.
