INKSTER, Mich. (WXYZ) — Another one of Detroit's Most Wanted is off the streets.

Alleged car thief Henry Ford was arrested in Inkster on Wednesday.

Ford, 49, was wanted for stealing from cars across metro Detroit. Police said he served prison time for the crime, but reportedly cut off his tether. He allegedly stole GPS units out of cars.

The U.S. Marshals say when Ford decided he should be off parole, he sent the Michigan Department of Corrections a note, right along with the tether he cut from his ankle.

"So Henry Ford, he’s stealing GPS units out of vehicles, he’s stealing tires, he’s robbing these cars," said deputy Aaron Garcia. "He has a criminal history of receiving stolen property three times, assault with a deadly weapon - felonious assault, possession of burglary tools and larceny of motor vehicles times three."
