JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Two Jonesboro men have been charged in a vehicle theft case that ended in a crash at a busy intersection.

19-year-old Montana Xavier Satterfield and 21-year-old Jose Felix Cazares were charged on Friday, Dec. 9 by a Craighead County judge.

According to a probable cause affidavit, on Sunday, Dec. 4, officers were advised by the owner of a vehicle on East Parker Road had been stolen when it was left running to warm up.

Video footage showed a gray Acura pulling into the parking lot, and both Satterfield and Cazares got out, got into the victim’s Nissan Versa, and left the parking lot heading toward Caraway Road.

On Tuesday, Dec. 6, a Jonesboro officer found the stolen vehicle at the Links apartment complex when the Acura seen in the video drove by the officer.

The affidavit said Satterfield, who was driving the Acura, led officers on a chase through the city, eventually running a red light at the intersection of Highland Drive and Bittle Street and crashing into two other vehicles. Both Satterfield and Cazares then ran on foot and were arrested shortly after.

On Friday, Satterfield was charged with theft by receiving greater than $5,000 but less than $25,000, leaving the scene of an accident with property damage, and fleeing. Cazares was charged with theft by receiving greater than $5,000 but less than $25,000 and fleeing.

Both men were given $35,000 bonds and a court date of Jan. 18. They still are being held at the Craighead County Detention Center.
