A man accused of stealing a car from a dealership was arrested only minutes after the theft, according to the sheriff's office.

Lt. Sheila Cole said 24-year-old Matthew Sammons, of Anderson, went to Fisher & Fisher Enterprises in Pendleton where he spoke with the owner about buying a car.

While the owner was assisting other customers, Cole said Sammons stole a 1996 Ford Mustang. 

She said the car was equipped with a GPS tracking device. 

The device led deputies to Saddlers Creek Campground where Sammons was arrested only a few minutes after the theft, according to Cole.

Cole said he was recently released from the detention center on June 7 in connection with a use of vehicle without permission charge.
