Police found the driver of the vehicle in the 1300 block of North Spring Avenue and arrested him.
38-year-old Abouk Deng is facing theft by deception, fleeing police, obstruction, resisting arrest, and a possession of a controlled substance charges.
Police say Deng was the one who passed the bill and that he had meth on him during the arrest.
