Man arrested in Ga. in car he'd reported stolen

ROME, Ga. (AP) - Police in Rome arrested a 24-year-old man they say was found driving his car after he'd reported it stolen.

Officers at the Floyd County Jail said Wednesday that Ryan Lance Roland, who was arrested Saturday, is still in jail after being granted bond of $2,700 on charges of false report of a crime and driving under the influence.

Police say Roland, who was staying at a motel, had told officers someone had entered his room when he was out and his car had been stolen.

Officers watched for the 2001 Acura Integra on the road and spotted it - with Roland behind the wheel.

Roland was jailed after an alcohol test. Police say he told them a friend had borrowed the car but failed to return it when promised.
