Man Catches Suspect Who Stole His Truck

When a car theft victim spotted his stolen truck at a San Diego mall, he made sure the suspect was arrested Thursday evening.

The man was with a friend near Fashion Valley Mall at 6:30 p.m. when he saw a stranger driving his black Ford pickup truck. As he tried to yell at the suspect, the man behind the wheel took off.

However, he soon crashed into a white Infiniti SUV under the trolley station on the mall’s property, allowing the victim to catch up to him.

The suspect got out and ran into the mall with the victim hot on his heels.

The truck’s rightful owner tackled the suspect to the ground. The victim was able to hold him there until police arrived and arrested him.

Police are not sure how much damage the crash caused to the two vehicles.
