MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Months after a delivery driver had his work van stolen from outside a Cordova flower shop, police have made an arrest with the victim’s help.

The van was stolen on April 28 from a strip mall in the 7800 block of Trinity Road. The driver said he left it running to grab a delivery address when someone jumped into the vehicle.

The victim said he and another man followed the van to a gas station on the Germantown Parkway, and he tried to take the vehicle back.

The delivery driver said when he opened the passenger-side door to get inside he was dragged by the van. He hurt his arm but got a good look at the driver.

The victim later contacted police and identified 22-year-old Nicholas Redden as the car thief.

According to court records, he told investigators he saw a new story about Redden being arrested for another auto theft and recognized him as the man who stole his vehicle.
