VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – A 36-year-old man arrested just a week ago was arrested again on Thursday morning after being spotted driving a stolen car.

Virginia Beach Police responded to the 600 block of Mango Drive for a report of a stolen car around 1:45 a.m. Thursday morning.

As the officer was taking the report, the owner spotted the vehicle.

Officers followed the vehicle to the Wawa at 201 Rosemont Road.

The suspect, 36-year-old Bryan Gavin George Murdoch, was taken into custody by a K9 unit. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment of bites sustained during the apprehension, treated and released to police custody.
