Shortly before 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, Paris police officers responded to a call at Bonham and 19th Street, where a man complained that a man unknown to him drove away in his vehicle while he was inside a convenience store.
The owner said he left the engine running in the parking lot while he went inside to speak with his wife. He said he saw a man get into his car, and attempted unsuccessfully to stop him.
Curtis Garrett, public information officer for the police department, said the vehicle was located about 5 a.m. Thursday in a driveway in the 1900 block of Brown Avenue.
The incident is under investigation, Garrett said.
From mid-morning Wednesday until mid-morning Thursday, the police department responded to 92 calls for service, Garrett said. There were 11 arrests — three for public intoxication, three for possession of drug paraphernalia, two on traffic warrants, two on a motion to revoke probation, and one for disorderly conduct.
