Southampton Car Chase Suspect Nabbed

Southampton Town Police have apprehended a suspect wanted for fleeing officers who tried to stop him for driving a stolen vehicle last week, authorities said.

Carlos Garcia was arrested Monday and charged with grand larceny.

Police said the 21-year-old man fled Stony Brook University police who spotted him driving a stolen car near the Southampton campus Thursday.

Garcia fled on foot after he jumped out of the moving vehicle, causing it to crash, police said.

He was also charged with burglary of a cell phone from an AT&T store Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays last August, police said.

He will be arraigned Tuesday at Southampton Town Justice Court.
