JERSEY CITY, N.J. – On Friday, a New York man stole a car from an Atlantic City dealership. After some time, he was found by the police with $40,000 in cash and prescription pills. Numerous charges have been filed against him.

According to the police, the 42-year-old man, Simon Dolmaian, was driving recklessly in a Corvette that had been reported stolen Friday morning.
