The 2011 Toyota Camry was stolen Tuesday, prompting fears that the high-powered rifle would be taken.

No arrests were made as of Thursday morning.

TAMPA – An unmarked FBI car has been found, and a Tampa man has been arrested and charged with the theft.

The 2006 silver Pontiac Grand Prix was stolen about 1:30 p.m. from the Century Buick Pontiac GMC dealership at 3308 W. Hillsborough Ave.

According to Tampa police, a mechanic was working on the car when he noticed a man loitering nearby. A short time later, when his attention was diverted, the man stole the car, police said.

Tampa police Cpl. Harold McCray was on patrol when he spotted the car being driven recklessly near North 26th Street and East Linebaugh Avenue at 11:17 p.m. Tuesday. It looked similar to the description he had heard of the stolen FBI vehicle, so he ran the Florida tag: X74IVY.

The Grand Prix turned onto the North 26th Street, and he followed it.

Soon after, the vehicle’s tag information came back as belonging to the FBI and having been stolen.
