Police Arrest Man Who Stole Cars From Petoskey Area

Posted: Updated:

A man in a stolen car led police on a short chase Wednesday night in Emmet County.

The car was stolen early Wednesday.

An officer saw it in Petoskey around 8:30 Wednesday night at the intersection of Arlington and Lafayette.

The police chief tells 9&10 News the officer chased the driver through the Bay View community, but the person got away.

Police believe at some point, the man ditched the car and stole a different one in Petoskey. 

Early Thursday morning, state troopers in Cheboygan County spotted a car in a ditch on M-68.

They arrested the driver, Justin Linden, on several charges including driving while on drugs and driving without a license.

Troopers say Linden later admitted the car was stolen from Petoskey.

He says he also stole a second car from the same area Thursday after getting away from police on the chase.
