A 20-year-old man is accused of being a passenger in a vehicle that was stolen in Saratoga Springs. 

Police received a report on Tuesday of a stolen vehicle from the victim’s driveway. Officers spotted the vehicle on Circular Street and followed it to the area of Jones Road in Wilton, where the driver lost control and crashed. They fled on foot, but were quickly arrested.

The driver, a 17-year-old man, was arrested and turned over to a parent to appear in youth court at a later date.

The passenger in the vehicle, Richard M. Capone Jr., was charged with a felony count of grand larceny and misdemeanors of obstruction of governmental administration and conspiracy.

Capone, who police said has no fixed address, was released on an appearance ticket. He is due in Saratoga Springs City Court on Feb. 20.
