A failed attempt at stealing a vehicle resulted in the arrest of 23-year-old Tyler Osborne for vehicle theft and felony vandalism.

Just before 8:00 pm on Saturday, March 9th, the vehicle owner called to report finding his 1982 Mercedes sedan damaged and moved from its original location on Lyons Street. During the commission of the crime, a crowbar was used on the vehicle causing approximately $1,000 worth of damage.

The owner of the vehicle had captured the crime on surveillance and shared it with responding officers who recognized Osborne as someone they had contacted around 2:00 am that morning in downtown Sonora.

Officers later located Osborne and arrested him for his crimes.
