Former Steelers cornerback arrested for stealing a vehicle

Former Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Grant Mason has been charged with receiving and concealing stolen property and intent to pass a false vehicle title in Michigan.

According to CBS Sports, he was arrested trying to board a flight.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Wednesday that the 31-year-old Mason was arrested Monday while trying to board a flight from Detroit Metropolitan Airport to Canada.

The arrest follows a two-year investigation into a stolen Audi Q5 that was intercepted at the Ambassador Bridge in Detroit after being sold online for about $30,000 to a buyer in Canada. The Canadian buyer was able to stop payment on the check after learning of the scheme.

Mason, a native of Pontiac, Michigan, played cornerback in 2007 for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was arraigned Tuesday and jailed in Detroit. It was not clear if he has an attorney.
