A suspected stolen vehicle helped lead Branford Police to a missing man who was later arrested, according to officers.
An officer found a pick-up truck that was stolen from the driveway of a nearby home while out patrolling.
A police officer and his K9 from East Haven helped Branford Police track from the stolen pick-up truck to nearby woods where police said they found 36-year-old Kyle Northam.
Northam had been the subject of a prior missing person's case, police said. His whereabouts were unknown and his family members were concerned for his well-being.
Officers said Northam was taken into custody on several active arrest warrants for failure to appear in court and larceny-related charges.
Investigators later determined that Northam was responsible for the theft of the pick-up truck and he was charged accordingly.
Northam was detained on court set bonds and appeared in court on Monday.
