Jan. 18 around 12:37 p.m., a man called the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office to report that he was behind his brother’s stolen maroon F350 truck with the rear window smashed out.  They were eastbound on Highway 90.  Deputies spotted the stolen truck and attempted to stop it. 

The driver veered the truck into a field in the 2100 block of North Broadway in China.  The truck became stuck in the field.  The male suspect then fled on foot.  A search of the area ensued.  The suspect was taken into custody nearby.
