Warren police recover stolen car on tip from its previous owner

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

A Garrettsville man's Tuesday took a serendipitous turn when he spotted his recently stolen car at a Warren Taco Bell drive-thru.  

According to Warren police, the man's vehicle had been stolen from Niles several days before the Tuesday incident.  

Police say the man immediately notified them and the South Street Taco Bell's manager.  

The manager then instructed the store's employees to hold up the line so that police could respond in time.  

Police arrived on the scene while the vehicle in question was still idling at the drive-thru window.  

Officers then, according to the police report, confirmed the car was stolen, approached its window, and arrested the driver inside.

The driver was found to be 20-year-old Warren resident Davon Frazier.  

Frazier was subsequently arrested and charged with receiving stolen property, a felony.

After being sent to Trumbull County Jail, Frazier was arraigned on Wednesday in Warren Municipal Court.  He pled not guilty.  

The suspect is next due in court on June 30th in front of Judge Thomas Gysegem.  

The Garrettsville man, however, got to drive home in his newly recovered car.
