AMADOR COUNTY (CBS13) — A Sacramento man was arrested in Amador County on Wednesday after deputies discovered he had been driving a stolen truck out of Roseville.
Amador County deputies received reports Wednesday morning of a suspicious man walking to a gas station in Volcano after his vehicle ran out of gas.
Deputies said the man, Roger Don Kenerly, was located at a house in Buckhorn and found to be in possession of a stolen truck from Roseville.
Kenerly was also found to have an active felony warrant in Sacramento County.
A similar story happened in October. A woman in Lincoln waved down one of their officers and told the officer that she ran out of gas and needed a ride to her car.
The officer gave the woman, Lynette Stewart, a ride as well as a gas can. When he checked out the status of the vehicle, he found that it had been reported stolen.
She was arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft and possession of methamphetamine.
