NEWARK - A theft from a local car dealership has been mostly resolved after a 15-year-old suspect was arrested in a stolen Audi. Police found this suspect to be related to the theft of 12 cars from a single dealership, but also 139 key fobs stolen from their key tracking system. The Newark Public Safety Director commended the officers for getting to the bottom of the case, and suspects apprehended.
