By Kyle Feldscher

A 55-year-old homeless man was arrested after being caught with a stolen 1991 Plymouth Acclaim on Tuesday morning in Ann Arbor, police said.

Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said officers were doing regular patrols in the 400 block of Lawrence Street when they came across the Acclaim, which had been reported stolen in Novi.

The man was arrested at about 6 a.m. Tuesday without incident, Bush said.

Police also are searching for a 2008 Dodge Caliber that was reported stolen Monday in an unrelated incident.

Bush said a 30-year-old Ann Arbor woman reported the Caliber had been taken some time between 5 p.m. Sunday and 10:30 a.m. Monday from the 3000 block of Partridge Path.

The Caliber has dark tinted windows, but a color description was not included in the police report, Bush said.

Anyone with information on the stolen vehicle is encourage to call the Ann Arbor police anonymous tip line at 734-794-6939.

We have cops! Doing their job well! Yay!! Homeless man commits a crime... that has a familiar ring to it. The single biggest factor since Nov. 2008 in homelessness is: Republican policy. Since Nov. 2008: the single biggest factor in reduced police and fire services is: Republican policy. And on Tuesday, November 6, 2012: we will have our chance to show our appreciation of Republicans and Republican policies.
