Officers located the vehicle in the 100 block of Breton Road and a man matching the description from the reported incident on Sharon Crescent and he was arrested. 

A search of the area of arrest found the accused to be in possession of a key to the stolen vehicle, a lock wrapped in a bandana, a can of bear spray and approximately one gram of a substance believed to be fentanyl.

As a result, Cameron McDonald, 32, was arrested and charged with theft over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime, possession a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a controlled substance, trespassing at night and breach of probation.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 7.
