Original release (April 4, 2016  10:36 a.m.):

A Glen Burnie man has been charged after he took a car from the dealership where he worked and took it for a ride.
Just after 12:20 a.m. on March 27, a Baltimore County Police officer was patrolling in a marked vehicle in the 500 block of Edmonson Avenue 21228. She observed a black Hyundai Elantra pull out of a Royal Farms store with no headlights on. The vehicle then began to drive in a reckless manner so the officer pulled it over and found the suspect to be the driver. The suspect, who had a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath, told the officer that he just put an engine in the vehicle and was test driving it. He worked at Antwerpen Hyundai on Baltimore National Pike and the car belonged to a customer.
After performing poorly on field sobriety tests, the suspect was taken into custody. It was learned that the suspect did not have permission to take the vehicle from Antwerpen Hyundai, and his driver’s license was revoked.
The suspect has been identified as 44-year-old Michael Linwood Cox of the 300 block of Dark Star Way 21060. He has been charged with auto theft, DUI, driving on a revoked license, and related charges. He is being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $25,000 bail.
