LONGPORT — A 49-year-old Somers Point man was arrested early Sunday after police pulled him over and found he was driving a stolen car.

About 12:25 a.m., Patrolman Frank Lupperger stopped a car near the 30th Avenue beach block, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page. Officers found the driver, later identified as Stephen Feeney, was in a stolen car.

Feeney hit on the National Crime Information Center, a criminal records database that also tracks wanted people, for the Atlantic County Sheriff’s Office and was also wanted in Galloway Township for theft, police said.

Feeney was charged with receiving stolen property, issued multiple traffic summonses and was turned over to Galloway police on the theft charges before he was taken to the Atlantic County jail.
