"I'm glad to get him off the street so he can't take another car," said Lewisburg Police Detective Scott Braden about the man alleged to have stolen Melissa Harwell's red 1989 Ford Escort from the Quik Mart on North Ellington Parkway.

The theft of the car was reported on Aug. 13 when the man now identified as Joseph E. Rohlman, 42, got into the vehicle at the gas pump and drove it away.
