Car thief arrested

Staff Writer

Fugitive James Peters III turned himself in to City of Bradford Police at 4 a.m. Wednesday morning.
The 21-year-old is accused of stealing a Porsche SUV from Ridgway and later ditching it in Limestone, N.Y. after a police chase early Friday morning.
He’s charged with fleeing and eluding, reckless endangering and receiving stolen property. He’s also charged with corruption of minors because he had two teenage girls in the SUV with him.
Peters is in McKean County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
He had another active warrant from the McKean County Sheriff’s Department for absconding from probation after a separate auto theft conviction.
