Police: Teen passenger arrested after driver flees stolen car

A teen was arrested and police are still searching for a second suspect after officers located a stolen car in a Jericho motel parking lot Thursday using a tracking device.

Eduardo Carbucia, 16, of 194 Logan St., Brooklyn, was a passenger in the stolen vehicle, Nassau County police said. He was arrested without incident after police tracked the car using a LoJack device notification to a Hampton Inn parking lot on Jericho Turnpike.

The arrest took place at 1:23 a.m. Police said Carbucia was charged with third-degree unauthorized use of a vehicle.

A second suspect, who police said was the driver, fled on foot and has not been arrested. Police said the car was a 1999 Acura. Carbucia faces arraignment Thursday in First District Court in Hempstead.
