A man was arrested after he stole a $71,000 Corvette from a car dealership and then lead police on a foot chase in west Charlotte Monday afternoon. 

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say the man, later identified as 28-year-old Domanique Mobley, stole the Corvette from Park Chevrolet on North Tryon Street Monday.  Police said Mobley was looking at new Corvettes when he got the keys from the dealer, jumped in the car and took off in the vehicle. 

The dealer called police and the car was tracked using OnStar, officers said.

The vehicle was then located at the Columbus Circle Grocery convenience store on Berryhill Drive in west Charlotte. Police said Mobley fled the scene on foot when officers arrived. 

CMPD said Mobley was arrested after the brief foot chase on Freedom Drive. He had to show his identification to the dealer before he received the keys so the employee was able to identify him, officers said.

Mobley was charged with motor vehicle theft, possession of a stolen vehicle, and resisting arrest.
