GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Gainesville man was arrested for stealing a car and then crashing it.

Police say 18-year-old Leonard Lee Jones and a juvenile accomplice took money and car keys from a man making a withdrawal from an ATM machine yesterday morning.

The duo fled in the man's 1967 Buick. Officers later spotted the car and chased it before the robbers crashed the car into a building.

Jones is charged with carjacking, armed robbery and resisting arrest. He was being held at the Alachua County Jail without bond.
