Officers soon found the vehicle at the fuel pumps.

Earl-Barnabas Coleman, 25, reportedly was trying to start the Tahoe and leave.

He allegedly told officers that someone he knew by their first name offered to loan him the vehicle to travel to Dallas.

Authorities arrested him on a charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Officers also arrested Coleman's passenger for allegedly using a credit card she found in the vehicle to buy food and drinks at the Texarkana store.
