Murray Bridge police have arrested a man for allegedly stealing a hire car.

Police spotted the Isuzu ute on Charles Street just after 2.30am on Monday, November 11 and noticed it had been reported stolen.

When they pulled it over and breath-tested its driver - a 38-year-old man of no fixed address - he allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.054, slightly more than the legal limit.

He was arrested, denied bail, and faced Murray Bridge Magistrates' Court over the matter.
