SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Springfield police arrested a man accused of stealing vehicles from used car dealerships in the city. 

Springfield Police spokesman Ryan Walsh said 42-year-old Curtis Combs III of Springfield was arrested near the intersection of Armory Street and Grosvenor Street after an investigation into a series of cars being stolen from used car dealerships in Springfield. 

On three different occasions, Combs went into different used car dealerships and requested a "test drive". He would then drive off in a car and not return to the dealership, said Walsh. 

On Wednesday, detectives received information on Comb's location and one of the stolen cars. Officers went to the 500 block of Armory Street and located two of the stolen cars, Walsh said. 

About an hour later, Combs was arrested on Armory Street.

He is charged with three counts of larceny of a motor vehicle, breaking and entering into a vehicle at night with the intent to commit a felony, larceny of property over $1,200, larceny of property under $1,200, and larceny of a registration plate.
