WENATCHEE — Warming up a car in cold weather can backfire. An East Wenatchee man learned that lesson Sunday night when he had his Jeep Wrangler stolen from the Prospector Pies parking lot in the 700 block of North Wenatchee Avenue.

The man was just getting off work at the restaurant and had gone outside to warm up the car, then went back inside the restaurant, said Sgt. Jim West with the Wenatchee Police Department. When the man came back outside, the Jeep was gone. The man reported the car stolen and, a few minutes later at 10:32 p.m., an East Wenatchee police officer spotted the car in the 800 block of South Mission Street, West said. The officer pulled the car over, but the driver fled. The officer chased him to the 200 block of South Mission Street where he was arrested.
