New Bedford Detectives have recovered a vehicle stolen in Fall River last week.

New Bedford Police

According to police, the 2004 Accura was carjacked by a lone male at a Spindle City convenience store on May 1st. The female driver was unharmed and dropped off safely shortly after the incident.

On Saturday, New Bedford Detectives spotted the vehicle in the 7-11 parking lot at Acushnet Ave and Coffin Ave, and immediately arrested 23-year-old Curtis Cruz of New Bedford, and 22-year-old Keith Beland of Attleboro.

Both are charged with receiving a stolen car, and Beland faces an additional charge of possession of a Class B substance, suboxone. They’re being arraigned today in New Bedford District Court, but are not believed to be involved in the initial carjacking.

Police are now asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspected carjacker. If anyone has any information on the incident, or the suspect’s identity, call New Bedford Detectives at 508-991-6300 ext. 320.
