Alleged car thief arrested at beach

Police have charged a 38-year-old man with auto theft after police said he was in a stolen Mercedes Benz at Hale'iwa Beach Park Sunday morning.

Police said they found Becker sitting in the parked Mercedes Benz with its headlights on around 8 a.m. They ran a check of the car's license plate number and found the plate belonged to another Mercedes Benz of a different color, according to police.
