Two men pulled over and asked Palm Springs police for directions — in a stolen vehicle, police said Thursday.

When the officer ran the license plate, dispatchers said the car was stolen from Riverside.
Both men were arrested and booked into the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning. Both were still being held there Friday, each in lieu of $25,000 bail.
The driver of the car — who police identified was Brentyn Lee Mitchell, 20, of Cherry Valley — could face charges of possession of a stolen vehicle.
The passenger of the vehicle — identified was Jaron Hopkins, 21, of Banning — could face a charge of providing false information to police, Long said. He was also held on a parole hold.Losers.
