Jeffrey Jones, 38, was arrested on suspicion of grand theft auto and being held on $25,000 bail at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

“We received a LoJack hit on the vehicle at AMPM in Newhall, one male white was arrested for grand theft auto,” said Sgt. Rich Nagler of the Sheriff’s Station.

The gas station was located at Second and Arch streets, according to station officials.

After receiving an alert to their patrol car, deputies were able to track the suspect to the location where a stolen car was found with no license plates. The car-theft alarm system alerts deputies to the location of a car as soon as it’s reported stolen.

“It goes to the patrol car, and then they can figure out where the stolen car is and then can nab (the suspect),” said Lt. Tom Bryski of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.
