Jonathan Rivera, 25, was at Superior Court in Hartford on Wednesday to answer a charge of first-degree larceny and tampering with a motor vehicle involving the theft of a car in Hartford on Feb. 17.

As he waited to appear before a judge, Hartford Parking Authority agents scanning license plates for parking violators got a hit on a white 2014 Subaru Legacy parked near the courthouse. The license plates had been reported stolen and the car itself had been stolen from Newington, police said.

Police kept an eye on the car, and when Rivera left court, got in and tried to drive away, they moved in and arrested him.

He was charged with second-degree larceny and taking a motor vehicle without the owner's permission.
