A teenager was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke on Friday on a charge of unauthorized use of a vehicle.
Jeysen Cain, 17, was arrested Thursday by Killeen police, according to an arrest affidavit.
A black Audi Q5 with no license plates was reported stolen from the sales lot at Roger Beasley Mazda on Thursday, the affidavit stated.
A Killeen police officer patrolling in the 5000 block of South Fort Hood Street observed a vehicle matching the description later in the day. However, the vehicle did have a license plate on the back at this time.
The vehicle speeded up and began to weave through traffic, the affidavit stated.
The officer pursued the vehicle and saw it pull into the parking lot of A1 Fence and Welding, at which time Cain fled, police said.
The officer verified the license plate on the rear of the vehicle actually belonged to a 2016 Ford.
At that point, a man approached the police officer to tell him someone had run around the building on the property.
The officer entered the building and consulted with an employee.
Cain was eventually found hiding behind an ice machine and taken into custody.
Cain’s bond was set at $50,000. The offense is a state jail felony punishable by six months to 2 years.
As of Friday afternoon, he was no longer listed in the Bell County Jail.
