Garner police told local media outlets that 39-year-old Jason Lee Robinson of Raleigh was arrested Sunday and charged with larceny, driving while impaired and hit and run.
Authorities say Robinson took the $50,000 vehicle while its driver was emptying trash cans on Saturday night. Police say he then used it to drive in circles around a Garner shopping mall parking lot, damaging a curb, bushes and another vehicle.
Robinson was caught after the street sweeper ran over a median and came to a stop. It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney.
