WATERLOO (KWWL) - Investigators with the Black Hawk County Sheriff's Department arrested 48-year-old David Lee Roy Smith of Hazelton and charged him with first-degree theft, possession of stolen property and driving with a suspended license Thursday morning.

The stolen vehicle had an OnStar safety device inside.

Investigators were not only able to track the vehicle through GPS but also shut off the car just before he was taken into custody.
