LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A man was arrested Thursday for stealing a car from someone he knew and never returning it.

According to an arrest warrant, 25-year-old Tracy McCraw, a friend, and a mutual acquaintance went to the acquaintance's apartment in the 100 block Minette Circle on March 11. While the woman, whom McCraw had known about a week, was taking a nap, McCraw allegedly stole her 2009 Hyundai Sonata valued at $9,000, her cell phone, a purse containing $200 and a $200 hard drive.

The victim told police she called McCraw twice on the cell phone he stole, and both times, he promised he would be right back with the car. He never returned.

McCraw was arrested Thursday. He is charged with theft by unlawful taking.
