The Auburn Police Division arrested 18-year-old Deaundre L. Cobb of Auburn on June 20 and charged him with first and third degree theft of property.

His arrest stems from the investigation of a police report received earlier this same date in which the victim stated that her 2005 Volvo was stolen from the 400 block of Mary Lane. 

A laptop computer inside the vehicle at the time was located at a pawn shop in Tuskegee, Alabama.  Further investigation identified Cobb as the likely suspect in the vehicle theft. 

Auburn detectives located the Volvo at Cobb’s place of employment in Opelika, Alabama, at which time he was taken into custody. 

Cobb was transported to the Lee County Detention Center where he is currently being held on a $6,000 bond.
