Man locked in car arrested

17 Sep 2020 10:37am

A man has been arrested after allegedly becoming locked inside someone else's car at Pooraka.

About 9.30pm on Wednesday 16 September, police were called to Montague Road, Pooraka.  The victim had been inside a shop and when he looked out, he saw someone inside his car, so he locked it remotely and called police.

When patrols arrived a few minutes later they found the man inside the black BMW sedan with the owners holding the doors closed.

A 31-year-old man from Elizabeth Grove was arrested and charged with illegal use of a motor vehicle. He was bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on 30 November.
