Houston Auto Theft Stopped in Polk County, NEW WILLARD, January 9, 2010 - Shortly after 10 am on January 9, 2010, Deputy Brent Foster was on patrol and spotted a tan, late model Chevy Trailblazer that was reported stolen from a car lot in Houston. The former Marine pulled the vehicle over on the shoulder of the north-bound side of US-59 in New Willard. After checking, it turns out that it was the stolen vehicle. The vehicle occupants were James Arthur McCutcheon, 31, of Houston, and Jose Angel Canderlara, 35, also of Houston. Foster placed both men under arrest without incident and at time of press they are being charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and are possibly facing more charges. A rollback wrecker from Harwood Wrecker Service recovered the stolen vehicle and it will be stored at 101 Harwood Drive in Livingston. The scene was cleared before noon.
