Police were called to the 12000 block of York Street just before 6 a.m. Investigators found the owners of the truck physically restraining a male suspect, who was arrested at the scene.

“Auto crime remains a priority for all police agencies, and working with citizens is one of the ways we can reduce the number of victims,” said Cpl. Brenda Winpenny.
