Colorado Springs police arrested an alleged truck thief Wednesday after the owner's son alerted them that someone was driving away with it.

The truck driver, who was not identified by police citing an ongoing investigation, was arrested around 4:30 p.m. at the Whitney Young Manor townhomes, 2161 Delta Dr., off South Chelton Road.

Police said a passenger in the stolen truck, also taken into custody, and evidence collected at the scene led them to the townhomes, where K-9 units assisted in finding the driver.

The truck was returned to its rightful owner, police said.
