MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Two men are behind bars after they allegedly stole a Jaguar car, crashed it into a mailbox and then were arrested in Cherokee Marsh in Madison Thursday.

Madison police say were able to track down the stolen 2017 Jaguar F-Pace with the help of the car's GPS monitoring technology.

Eventually the driver of the stolen car crashed it into a mailbox on Knutson Drive on Madison’s north side just after 1 p.m.

Police say residents were helpful in finding the suspects.

The Jaguar was listed as stolen out of the Town of Middleton.

Shawndale K. James, 22 of Beloit, was arrested for operating a motor vehicle without owner's consent, knowingly fleeing an officer, reckless driving and operating without a valid license.
