An East Holston Avenue man was arrested Thursday on a charge that he had a van stolen from Virginia at a local motel.

Johnson City police charged Jermaine Cooley, 40, 1305 E. Holston, No. 1, with possession of stolen property over $2,500.

Police said Cooley’s arrest resulted from the discovery of a 2006 Toyota Sienna van at Econo Lodge, 207 E. Mountcastle Drive, that had been reported stolen from Lynchburg, Virginia.

Cooley was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $5,000 bond awaiting a Sessions Court appearance set for Friday.
