Two stolen vehicles were recovered by the Lodi Police Department within two days, said Sgt. Chris Jacobsen.

On Monday, Officer Nathan Woods located a black ’95 Chevrolet pickup truck driving near Garfield and Vine streets just before 2 a.m. The truck had been reported stolen on Sunday. Woods followed the vehicle for several blocks before backup could arrive and stop the truck near Central and Concord streets.

Police arrested driver David Bation, 28, of Lodi, for possession of a stolen vehicle. The passenger, 18-year-old Breeana Garcia of Pioneer, was arrested on the same charges.

Lodi officers tracked down another stolen vehicle in the early hours of Tuesday.

Officer Mike Mantzouranis was patrolling on Lower Sacramento Road near Kettleman Lane when the details of a stolen 1995 Honda Civic popped up on his computer screen. He looked up, and a car of that description drove past him in the opposite direction on Lower Sacramento Road. He checked the license plate and confirmed it was the same car.

Mantzouranis called for support before Woods reached the home of the owner to take an official report, said Jacobsen.

Mantzouranis followed the Civic to the Shell station at the intersection of Lower Sacramento Road and Kettleman Lane.

Officers stopped the car at the gas station and arrested Lee Vue, 22, of Sacramento. He is being held on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of stolen property and possession of burglary tools.
