A Franklin man has been accused of stealing two cars in the same day.

Sixty-one-year-old Carl Wescott of Franklin was arrested Wednesday after police found him driving a woman’s car that she said was stolen at a car wash. Police said the driver departed at a high rate of speed, leading them on a chase. The vehicle eventually crashed into the woods in Franklin.

Wescott was identified as the driver and was jailed on charges of receiving stolen property, robbery, reckless conduct, disobeying an officer, and driving with a suspended license. He was arraigned Thursday and held without bail. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.

Earlier Wednesday, Wescott was arrested in Laconia on a charge of possession of a stolen rental vehicle. He had been released on personal recognizance bail.
