TEWKSBURY, Mass. — Police used the last address that had been programmed into a GPS unit they believed had been stolen to contact the owner of the device, confirm its theft, and arrest an 18-year-old Tewksbury man on Tuesday.

Police were called to the area of 90 State St. Tuesday about 12:25 a.m., after someone called police to report a man with a flashlight looking through cars in the area.
