A man using a tow truck reported stolen in Loganville was arrested for stealing abandoned cars in the aftermath of this week’s crippling snow storm.
According to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Louis Mitchell, Jr., 34, faces multiple charges, including five counts of auto theft.
The AJC reported that a suspicious APD officer noticed an unmarked tow truck pulling a car in southwest Atlanta on Thursday. The officer, Jamael Logan, followed the truck until it crashed, and the driver fled on foot.
Mitchell was found nearby.
The tow truck had been stolen earlier this month in Loganville.
