A suspect who abandoned a stolen car was picked up by a driver in another stolen car that had a glowing sign for the Lyft ride-sharing service, according to police.
Gresham officers spotted a stolen vehicle near Southeast 162nd and Stark Street at 12:15 a.m. Thursday. The car later was found abandoned near 162nd and Burnside Street.
Officers surrounded the area. A few minutes later they spotted a vehicle entering the area with an illuminated Lyft sign.
The driver of that car was picking up a man who matched the description of the suspect driving the first stolen car.
Officers stopped the second car and determined the woman behind the wheel was not a Lyft driver and the car she was driving was also stolen.
The passenger in the second car was identified as the driver from the first car.
