The second suspect in a car theft that occurred in early February is in custody thanks to Grass Valley Police. Sgt Clint Bates says that the original vehicle theft occurred near Lamarque Court and Brighton Street. Video footage from a neighboring residence identified a potential car the thieves were driving. The stolen car was recovered within 24 hours in the Penn Valley area. Evidence at that scene pointed to a second video system that had captured images of two men, Casey Soward and David Carson linking them to the theft.
