SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - A Sonoma County teenager remains jailed after his arrest for allegedly using stolen credit cards to rent a $240,000 sports car and a $12 million vacation home.

Sonoma County Sheriff's Sgt. Sgt. Michael Raasch tells the San Francisco Chronicle that 19-year-old Mohanned Halaweh was arrested on Wednesday after he was pulled over while driving the 2012 McLaren coup he had rented for $13,000.

Raasch says Halaweh also charged $27,000 to rent the home in Glen Ellen.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat identified Halaweh as a former standout basketball player at a Sebastopol high school.

He is being held on $100,000 bail. He has not yet entered a plea and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday.

A phone number for Halaweh's family in Rohnert Park was disconnected.
