First stolen 5th gen Camaro

ORLAND — Northstate Motors, Glenn County's only new car dealership, already threatened by cutbacks from General Motors, suffered another blow early Friday morning when a new, $30,000 Chevrolet Camaro was allegedly stolen from the lot.

An Orland police officer saw the car turn onto East Walker Street about 3:18 a.m. and immediately tried to pull it over.

The driver sped toward Interstate 5, then headed north, leading Orland and California Highway Patrol officers on a high-speed chase.

Due to public safety concerns, the pursuit was called off.

The bright yellow vehicle was found later Friday morning in Klamath Falls, Ore. Police there said they had one person in custody in connection with the alleged theft, but didn't release a name.
