CEDAR RAPIDS — Two Cedar Rapids men were arrested this week after they were seen driving vehicles reported stolen from a residence.

The owner of both vehicles told police early Tuesday that a 20125 Chevrolet Silverado and a 2006 Arctic Cat ATV, which was in the truck’s bed, were stolen from his driveway in the 1400 block of Prairie Rose Dr. SW, according to a criminal complaint. Police said the keys to the Silverado were left in the truck.

At 4:30 a.m. the next day, officers encountered Kyle W. Netolicky, 21, on an ATV in the 2900 block of Johnson Avenue NW.

Another man, Nathan B. Peterson, 23, was seen in possession of the stolen truck, according to the complaint.

Police said Netolicky attempted to flee from officers in the ATV and was found hiding in a garage in the 1900 block of Johnson Avenue NW.

Police said Netolicky had two active warrants — one through the Linn County Sheriff’s Office for first-degree theft and the other through the Department of Corrections.

Police said Peterson admitted to driving the stolen truck with a barred license. Methamphetamine also was found in his possession, according to a criminal complaint.
