POTTSVILLE, Ark.- A suspect wanted in connection to trying to pass fake money, run from police in a stolen car and stole another vehicle has been arrested, Pottsville Police say.

Pottsville Police posted about Jesse Copeland’s arrest on their Facebook page Wednesday morning, saying in part:

“Jesse Copeland has been arrested and is in custody! When you try and pass fake money, run from the police in a stolen car, steal another vehicle, probably the best place to park the stolen vehicle is not in front of your house.”
