A stolen vehicle out of Oklahoma City was found in Guthrie thanks to a recent camera system instituted by the Guthrie Police Department.
Over the weekend two individuals were arrested after being found in a stolen vehicle. The vehicle was located on Sooner Road near Camp Road. Officers were alerted to the stolen vehicle by Flock cameras.
Flock cameras will send a notification of stolen vehicles to the police department. Once the Flock camera sent the notifications, officers located the car and took two subjects into custody.
The driver of the vehicle Forrest Secondi, 19, of Guthrie, and his passenger Johnathan Preston, 28, of Oklahoma City, were arrested and since have been charged with various crimes.
Secondi was charged with possessing a stolen vehicle and controlled dangerous substances (marijuana and paraphernalia). Preston was charged with false presentation and possession of controlled dangerous substances (methamphetamine, marijuana, paraphernalia).
The vehicle was reported stolen in Oklahoma City on June 28.
“The Flock camera was instrumental in returning the stolen property to the rightful owner,” a spokesperson for the police department said.
