SONORA, Calif. (AP) — Police say a man came to a court appearance in the Central Valley in a stolen vehicle.

James Manning was arrested after police say they received a call from an auto dealership in Redding on Friday reporting the vehicle stolen. The vehicle's GPS indicated it was parked in front of the Tuolumne County courthouse in Sonora.

Officers found the 2001 Mitsubishi with different license plates on it. Sonora police say Manning's wife, 45-year-old Teresa Castillo, told officers her husband had bought the car earlier in the day for $200 so they could drive to Sonora for his court appearance.

But when police contacted the 49-year-old Manning inside the courthouse, they say he acknowledged knowing the car was stolen. He and Castillo were arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance.
