Colorado Springs police arrested two men wanted on outstanding warrants Thursday afternoon on the southeast side of the city after officers suspected the men drove a stolen vehicle, police said.

Officers spotted a stolen vehicle in the 1600 block of S. Circle Drive around 4:15 p.m. and followed the vehicle to a pawn shop, police said.

That's when officers arranged for support from the Tactical Enforcement Unit and managed to arrest 33-year-old Andrew McGee, who was wanted on six outstanding felony warrants, three misdemeanor warrants and was allegedly in possession of a stolen gun. He is a convicted felon, police said. The vehicle he was driving was stolen and he was also linked to three "recent" car thefts, officers said.
