An officer spotted the suspect's car traveling north on Galleria Boulevard, and followed to the area of Stanford Ranch Road and Five Star Boulevard, where officers stopped and contacted the occupants of the car. The car had been reported stolen from Rocklin earlier that day, and officers found the victim's cell phone inside. The stolen phone and car were returned to their respective owners.
