Chico police arrested a man Tuesday morning, after he was spotted sitting in a stolen car with all of its doors and trunk open.

An officer patrolling the Arbutus Avenue neighborhood spotted a green 1998 Honda Civic parked at the corner of 7th and Arbutus. The car’s doors and trunk were open and the driver was sitting inside.

The officer contacted the driver, later identified as Kevin Crone, and learned the car had been reported stolen.

Crone, who has been previously arrested by Chico police for weapons and possession of burglary tools, was booked into the Butte County Jail on suspicion of providing false information to a police officer and possession of a stolen vehicle.
