One man is in custody after stealing a car from a Sparks casino and then running after being pulled over by police.
Sparks Police arrived at the Western Village Casino around 2:30 a.m. after receiving a report of a stolen car. Officers located the car near 5th St. and Wright, and were able to pull over the driver, later identified as 31-year-old Carlos Alberto Santos.
Once pulled over, Santos attempted to run from police through the Sparks City Hall parking lot.
Upon being caught, he first tried to resist his arrest. He was soon taken into custody without further incident.
