Westchester County Police arrested a 20-year-old man on after he was found driving a stolen car on the Saw Mill River Parkway in Northern Westchester.
The suspect, identified as Keyshawn Adams, of the Bronx, was later found to be wanted on six outstanding arrest warrants lodged by three upstate police agencies, said Kieran O'Leary, spokesman for the Westchester County Police.
The incident began around 11:22 a.m., Tuesday, Jan. 21, when the Real-Time Crime Center at County Police headquarters broadcast an alert that a stolen 2009 Kia Spectra was traveling southbound on the Saw Mill River Parkway in Bedford, said O'Leary.
The Kia had been reported stolen in Syracuse on Jan. 6.
A patrol sergeant located the vehicle in Mount Pleasant and he and other officers stopped it at Route 141 and the Sprain Brook Parkway.
Adams and a female passenger were taken into custody. The woman was later released without charges.
Adams was charged with criminal possession of stolen property, and driving without a license.
While being booked officers determined that Adams was wanted on warrants lodged by the DeWitt Police Department, Clay Police Department and the Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department, O'Leary said.
Those warrants included offenses of criminal possession of stolen property, assault, menacing, criminal possession of a weapon, and harassment.
Adams was held overnight for arraignment Wednesday, Jan. 22, in Mount Pleasant Town Court on the Westchester charges.
Following arraignment, he was released to the custody of officers from the DeWitt Police Department to be returned to Onondaga County.
