A Finksburg man arrested Saturday on auto theft charges is being held at the Carroll County Detention Center in lieu of $10,000 bail.

Carroll County District Judge JoAnn M. Ellinghaus-Jones said at yesterday's bail review hearing that she would consider releasing the defendant until his March 26 trial if he is accepted at a substance abuse treatment center.

According to state police and court records, the defendant denied stealing a 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo from a neighbor's garage on Friday. The car was recovered Friday evening from a parking lot outside Safe Haven in the 200 block of Stoner Road in Westminster.
