Another vehicle belonging to a group of eight cars that were stolen from a Belmont auto dealership Sunday has been recovered and a suspect has been taken into custody. On Sunday September 21, an unknown number of suspects stole eight vehicles from a lot at the Autobahn Motors Mercedes dealership on Island Parkway between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m., according to police.
For the past week, Belmont detectives have been working with the San Mateo County Vehicle Theft Task Force and other Bay Area law enforcement agencies to investigate the incident. By Tuesday September 23, six of the eight vehicles stolen from the dealership had been recovered, all of which were found abandoned throughout Oakland, police said.
Police learned Wednesday that another one of the stolen vehicles was in the area of E. 19th Avenue in Oakland. California Highway Patrol officers located the 2013 Mercedes ML350 around 9:35 p.m. Wednesday night and arrested 24-year-old Jeremy Redwood of Oakland without incident, police said.
Redwood was booked into the Alameda County Jail on multiple charges, including auto theft, possession of stolen property, and violation of probation, according to police. The investigation into this incident is ongoing.
