A California couple has been arrested after driving a stolen car to a courthouse, police said.

A car dealership in Redding, Calif., called police to report a missing car on Friday. The dealership told police the car's GPS showed it was parked in front of a courthouse in Sonora, Calif., according to a press release from the Sonora Police Department.

Police officers found the car near the courthouse with different license plates on it. A woman who police identified as Teresa Castillo, 45, approached the car and told officers her husband had purchased the vehicle earlier that day for $200 so he could make a court appearance for a possession of a controlled substance charge, police said.

The woman's husband, James Manning, 49, initially denied knowing the car was stolen, but later admitted it was a stolen vehicle, police said.

Manning and Castillo were arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property and possession of a controlled substance.
