Stolen vehicle report leads to arrest of Nevada City man

A Nevada City man is facing multiple charges after reportedly being found with a stolen vehicle.

AJ Kirchner, 23, was arraigned Wednesday in Placer County on charges of vehicle theft, possessing a stolen vehicle, possessing burglary tools and drug paraphernalia in connection with a May 26 arrest. He pleaded not guilty and will be back in court on June 15.



Kirchner was arrested after Auburn Police officers responded to a report of a possible occupied stolen vehicle in the area of Elm Avenue and Highway 49.

Officers found Kirchner standing next to the vehicle, which had been reported stolen out of Grass Valley. He reportedly was found to be in possession of shaved ignition keys, burglary tools including vending machine keys, and suspected methamphetamine.
