SHREWSBURY – A stolen vehicle was found in a Shrewsbury resident’s driveway last night. 

At about 6:36 p.m. a resident in the 400 block of Grafton Street called to report a vehicle in their driveway that they did not recognize.

According to a Shrewsbury police press release, when officers arrived at the scene they discovered the vehicle, which was a 2009 Toyota Corolla that had been reported stolen from Worcester about two days ago. 

The driver was not with the vehicle, but multiple neighbors reported that a man, who they believed to be the driver, had been knocking at their door, officers said. Officers then began to search the area with the help of K-9 Hunter and located the driver on Memorial Drive, according to Shrewsbury police. 

Officers searched the car and found two boxes of tools inside the vehicle, which police said were discovered to have been stolen from the Home Depot in Shrewsbury. 

The suspect – Brian Horne, 40, of Worcester – was then arrested and charged with receiving a stolen motor vehicle, receiving stolen property under $1,200, false ID following arrest and fugitive from justice on a court warrant.  

Police learned that he had originally given them a fake name. 

After being fingerprinted, police discovered that Horne had multiple aliases and warrants for his arrest, including a felony probation warrant from Virginia.
