WAYNESBORO, Va. (AP) - Police in Waynesboro have arrested a motorist and recovered more than 80 pieces of stolen property from throughout Virginia and Pennsylvania.

An officer determined a car parked in a grocery store lot had been stolen in Georgia. The driver took off and was captured after a police chase.

Twenty-eight-year-old Duane Martin is charged with grand larceny, felony eluding, possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and driving on a suspended license. He's being held without bond at the Middle River Regional Jail.
