SPRINGVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) — After a vehicle was stolen in Springville and found in Buffalo less than an hour later, deputies have made an arrest.

Members of the Erie County Sheriff’s Office responded to a business in the village on Wednesday night. There, the victim told them their vehicle was missing from the parking lot. The keys were inside.

Shortly before 11:30 p.m., the vehicle turned up on Broadway. After initiating a traffic stop at the intersection of Rommel Avenue, Buffalo police took the driver, 29-year-old Brianna Duchene, into custody.

Once this occurred, deputies responded to the scene. The Springville woman was charged with a misdemeanor count of unauthorized use of a vehicle and turned over to Buffalo police to face more charges.

The vehicle has been returned to the owner.
