Marion Police Arrest Alleged Car Thief

Marion, Miss. Acting on a tip, the Marion Police Department helped recover a stolen vehicle from Smith County. The car is a white 2000 Toyota Corolla.

One of the workers at Satellites Unlimited reported a suspicious vehicle to police. The car had been there unattended for several hours.

When police ran a check on the tag, authorities discovered the vehicle belonged to a person in Smith County.

"The clutter inside the vehicle, you can tell that somebody probably took the panel off the side by the steering wheel to probably get it started," said Hopson.

And late Wednesday afternoon, the suspect returned to get the car, as CPL Hopson was there to meet a wrecker to move the vehicle. Hopson then took Hubert Thrash, Jr., into custody. He's being held for Smith County authorities.
