A test drive turned into a car theft late Friday morning in Winnebago County.

Deputies responded to Interstate 41 and Highway 21, where the sheriff's office tells Action 2 News that during the test drive, the driver told the salesman to get out, then took the car without permission.

The car was located in Brown County, where the sheriff's office was able to stop the car and take the driver into custody.

The man was booked into the Winnebago County Jail on suspicion of taking a vehicle without the owner's consent. No further information about the driver was available.
