Arrest made in vehicle-ramming dealership break-in


Police have been on the hunt for a man who rammed his vehicle through a local car dealership and escaped with cash.

Wednesday, almost a week later, a suspect has been arrested. On Tuesday, the suspect was identified as Steven Michael Stock and a warrant was out for his arrest.

He allegedly vandalized and robbed the Allietta Ford dealership in Wellsburg early Thursday morning.

Police say Stock got away with a significant amount of cash and caused substantial damage to the garage and inside of Allietta.

The Wellsburg police are thankful for the participation of the public in this investigation.

Stock was arrested after Steubenville police received information that he was traveling in a silver Ford Taurus coming from the Lincoln Heights area.

Upon pulling the car over, police confirmed the passenger was Stock and they made the arrest. He is being held in the Jefferson County jail.
