A 2008 BMW automobile stolen early this morning from the Hyatt Regency Valencia was recovered in the parking lot of a 99 Cent Only Store in Newhall at about 8:15 a.m., authorities said.

The BMW was tracked down using the vehicle's OnStar navigation system and recovered near the intersection of Lyons Avenue and Wiley Canyon, said Lt. Joe Efflandt of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station.

A person suspected of stealing the BMW was detained by deputies but later released when law enforcement determined the man was not involved with the theft, Efflandt said. Authorities are going to pull fingerprints from the vehicle to try to locate possible suspects, he said.

It was unclear Thursday morning whether the BMW was stolen from the Hyatt parking lot or the parking garage. Deputies who investigated the theft were on patrol.
