LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Police in southern New Mexico say an armed robbery suspect's apparent inability to drive a vehicle with a standard transmission helped lead to his arrest.

Las Cruces police say the suspect in a pharmacy robbery Wednesday tried to carjack a car nearby and initially tried to drive the vehicle himself before ordering its owner to drive him to a home several blocks away.

Police say the car's owner called 911 after dropping the suspect at the home and that police went to the home and arrested 22-year-old Devin Michael Saucedo on suspicion of armed robbery, kidnapping and aggravated assault.

Saucedo remains jailed. Online court records don't show that Saucedo has an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
