Rivera was charged with first-degree larceny and tampering with a motor vehicle. That theft occurred back in February. While Rivera was at court talking with a judge about that charge, parking officers were scanning license plates in the courthouse parking lot. They spotted a car that had been reported stolen, so officers waited for a driver to return. Police say Rivera was arrested as he tried to drive away.
Two new charges were added — second-degree larceny and taking a motor vehicle without the owner's permission. Maybe he's going for a hat trick, or, if he wants to keep things simple, steal a car straight from the courthouse parking lot.
