Officers are continuing to investigate the circumstances of this morning's pursuit and stolen car recovery in Northeast Portland.

The suspect, a 28-year-old male, has not yet been booked into jail.

The suspect was driving a silver 2001 Geo Tracker when he led police on a pursuit, then stole a silver 2006 Subaru Forester, from a victim at a gas station near Northeast Airport Way and Glenn Widing Drive. The victim was checking the air in her tires when the suspect got into the driver's seat and sped away.

Officers used the "Find my iPhone" app to track the victim's phone that was in the car, which led police to the location where the suspect was arrested.

The suspect's name and charges will be released upon his booking into jail.
