A Gainesville man was recently arrested after wrecking a vehicle he reportedly stole out of Braselton.

Officers with the Braselton Police Department arrested Trooier Sheron Glasper, 44, 1189 Desota St., Gainesville, on charges of theft by taking a motor vehicle.

The complainant told officers he parked his vehicle in a supermarket parking lot and when he came out of the store, his vehicle was gone. He'd left the vehicle unlocked with the keys in the floorboard.

Officers reviewed security video from the parking lot and saw a man walk around the vehicle several times before leaving in the stolen vehicle.

Meanwhile, the complainant got a call from the Hall County Sheriff's Office who told him the vehicle had been wrecked. Glasper had left on foot, but was located by Hall County authorities and ultimately arrested.
