A sharp-eyed neighbor helped CHP officers capture a suspected car theft.  According to San Andreas CHP reports, on Sunday night the witness observed two men towing a 1988 Ford Bronco off property on West Murry Creek Road and promptly called the property owner who then called the vehicle owner to determine whether anyone had permission to take it.  When the Bronco owner confirmed that he did not sell the vehicle, the neighbor made it impossible for the suspect to leave by blocking the roadway, until CHP officers arrived.  The driver, who was towing the vehicle, was identified as Ki Tama Purvis of San Andreas.  He told Officers and maintained, that he had purchased the Bronco from the registered owner.  He was arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.
