TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- With a little help from On-Star, Topeka police were able to track down a suspect accused of stealing a vehicle from a Topeka dealership on Thursday.

Authorities said they used to GM's in-car security service to find the vehicle at an apartment in Topeka. Police eventually found the suspect in the 2800 block of NE Rockaway Trail in northeast Shawnee Co. around 5:00 p.m. The suspect, who has not been identified yet, has been taken into custody.

The vehicle was stolen from Ed Bozarth Chevrolet earlier Thursday. Officers initially tried chasing him down, but called off the pursuit for safety reasons.
