Officers located a suspected stolen GMC Sierra at a residence in the 1000 block of El Paso Road on Thursday. Surveillance was maintained until a male and female drove the stolen vehicle to a business and were arrested without incident.

The male was identified as 32-year-old Tyler Jack Newton while the female is also well-known to police. Several charges have been recommended including possession of stolen property over $5,000, failure to comply with probation order and operating a conveyance while prohibited.
