San Anselmo police have charged a man with stealing a Lexus SUV he drove to court the same day a jury was to decide whether to convict him in a separate auto theft case. Tony Van was arraigned Monday on charges of receiving a stolen vehicle and receiving stolen property after police saw him park the stolen Lexus in front of the courthouse.

Police were initially attracted to the SUV after bystanders noticed several Yorkshire terriers in it. Van was also charged with animal cruelty and leaving animals in an unattended vehicle.

Meanwhile, the 37-year-old San Francisco hairstylist was convicted in the other case in which he was charged with possession of a $125,000 Porsche Carrera that had been stolen from a San Anselmo home.
