Authorities in Kennewick recovered a stolen vehicle, and it's back with it's rightful owner. But the suspect busted along with the car, say police, is NOT the person who took it.

Officials are still trying to determine how the man got the car. The arrest occurred early Thursday morning in the 600 block of South Hawthorne St.

The man was seen walking away from the car, and was nabbed on an outstanding warrant as well by the CAT (Criminal Apprehension Team).  Police say he was jailed, but apparently not the person who took it. The investigation continues.
