Two teens were arrested near Hanford after the car they stole turned out to have a locator device that let police known where to find them.
About 7:40 a.m. Thursday, Hanford police answered a call about a stolen 2006 Chevrolet HHR. The owner said the car had an OnStar navigation unit, so he contacted the company, which gave police the car's location.
Police soon found the stolen car at Grangeville and Kensington and tried to make a stop, but the driver kept going until he hit a curb, police said.
He got out of the car and started running, but police caught him. Meanwhile, officers arrested the passenger.
Inside the car, police found a treasure trove of stolen property linking the pair to other crimes.
The teens, both 16, were booked into the Kings County Juvenile Center on suspicion of car theft, robbery, burglary, evading police and gang charges.
