A transient is in jail charged with stealing a pickup.
A report from Roseburg Police says that a 21 year old man reported that his vehicle was stolen from the parking lot of a business in the 900 block of Garden Valley Boulevard, sometime after 12:00 a.m. Thursday.
A few hours later deputies with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office spotted the pickup on Highway 42. The driver failed to yield to them initially but after a short pursuit he pulled over and was arrested without incident after initially giving false information.
Frederick Zehe was charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, attempt to elude, and for providing false information to police. He is being held without bail.
The pickup was returned to its owner.
