GLADSTONE, MO (KCTV) -

A man who confessed to stealing a Corvette at gunpoint from a Gladstone dealership was arrested following some assistance from OnStar. 

According to court records, Tevin Young confessed to stealing the Corvette on Oct. 6. Young admitted to police that he used a gun to steal a 2017 Chevrolet Corvette from a dealership at 100 NW Vivion Road. 

Police contacted OnStar to help discover where the vehicle was. An OnStar technician, through vehicle tracking software, tracked the vehicle to an apartment on the 2800 block of Kendallwood Parkway. 

Apartment management told police a man matching the description of the subject was residing in the apartment complex. A resident at said apartment made non-verbal motions to police when officers knocked on his door, indicating Young's location. 

Young was found sitting in the corner of the living room and was promptly arrested by police. 

When talking to police, Young said he had been attempting to purchase a Corvette for several weeks. A salesperson told Young he could not buy the vehicle for the payment he wanted. 

According to court records, Young told police he obtained a handgun, went back to the dealership on Vivion Road and requested an employee to show him a Corvette. 

When the employee brought the keys out, Young pulled out the gun, pointed it at the ground and said “Give me this car.” 

Young’s criminal history revealed nothing of significance.
