The unmarked sheriff's vehicle that was stolen from an Alhambra car dealership on Sunday was found in Pasadena, the LA Times reports.

Pasadena police offers found the 2016 Dodge Charger around 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, without any damage and with all of its contents inside. Hang Ha, 43, was found sleeping inside the car, and has since been arrested on suspicion of grand theft auto.

"I don't know if Ha was the guy who stole the car or he was just looking for a place to sleep, but he was the person in possession of the stolen vehicle so he was booked on a GTA charge,'' Pasadena police Lt. Mark Goodman told City News Service.
