18-year-old Marcus Stanton was seen by the owner of a purple Hellcat pushing his vehicle away. The owner was able to locate the car through a GPS app, but Stanton was able to leave the vehicle and left in another stolen car, a white Infinity sedan. Both cars are estimated to be valued at around $80,000 combined. Stanton was also found to have three firearms, which were also confirmed to be stolen. Stanton was alerted that law enforcement helicopters were trailing him, so he ran on foot and hid from police, but he also stashed a pistol in the backyard of a place he was initially trying to hide. Stanton also had a juvenile in the car when attempting to steal the Hellcat. Stanton was taken into custody and charged with theft of property, theft of a firearm, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
