Police arrested a suspected car thief they found asleep in the 2001 Oldsmobile he's accused of stealing.
Officers said a 26-year-old man and a woman were found asleep in the car about six miles from where it was stolen. Both were taken into custody and the man was arrested on suspicion of grand larceny last week. It's not clear if the woman faces charges. An arrest warrant affidavit said he told officers the car had been sitting outside a liquor store, unlocked with the keys in the ignition. Casper, Wyo. AP
