Butte police reports

Car theft

Cory Steven Parke, 36, of Butte was booked into the jail late Tuesday night for felony motor vehicle theft.

At 5 p.m., Parke was in the 2600 block of Elm Street, showing an interest in a 2006 Buick LaCrosse a man was selling. The man reportedly gave Parke the keys, so he could listen to the engine. Instead, Parke took off in the car.

Several hours later, Parke and the Buick were found at the Town Pump, 531 S. Montana St. The owner of the car came up and identified Parke, who allegedly told an officer he was still just out test driving the car. He was arrested and handcuffed.
