Gassing up a poor choice for suspect

T aking time to gas up a stolen car was not necessarily a good idea for a Granville man, who is now facing a felony charge.

Jonathan P. Hyatt, 24, was sent Monday morning to the Warren County Jail for lack of bail, charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, police said.

New York State Police said Hyatt was arrested mere minutes after he took a car he found warming up in a Queensbury driveway on Mountainview Lane shortly after 7:30 a.m.

The owner of the 1996 Saturn told police he started his vehicle to let it warm up and then listened as it drove off.

After the call went out, a trooper spotted the vehicle as it pulled out of Stewart’s Shop on Aviation Road and Hyatt was arrested.

Police said the vehicle had little gas when Hyatt allegedly took it so he stopped to put some gas in the tank before continuing back to Granville. Hyatt told police he had been in Queensbury visiting a friend for the weekend and found himself without a ride home.
