SAN BERNARDINO CA Aug 8 2017 Police investigated a unique vehicle theft after they found someone driving around a San Bernardino movie theater parking lot Sunday night in a go-kart that had been stolen from a Redlands amusement park, officials said.
The powder-blue kart with the number 19 on the front was stolen from a fenced-off area of Splash Kingdom in Redlands about 6 p.m. Sunday, officials said.
It turned up two hours later and 6 miles away in downtown San Bernardino, being driven by Jeremiah Gerky, 29, of San Bernardino, said San Bernardino police Lt. Vicki Cervantes. Gerky was harassing and ignoring security officers in the theater parking lot on E and Fourth streets, Cervantes said.
Gerky was arrested on suspicion of grand theft and the kart was recovered, officials said.
Gerky was booked into the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamongo with bail set at $50,000. Court records also show Gerky was on probation.
