ELKO – A local man was allegedly caught in possession of a stolen vehicle when Highway Patrol officers saw him drive through a stop sign.

Joshua Rose, 18, was arrested late Sunday night on Lamoille Highway. The dark-colored SUV was pulled over by an NHP officer who found that that registration information matched a vehicle that had been reported stolen.

NHP officer Alberto Perez said it is unclear if Rose is also responsible for stealing the vehicle.

“We do not have anything on that,” he said. “According to the report it looks like that’s still under investigation,” he said.
