A 1999 Ford F150 truck was stolen from CarMart Net in Fergus Falls just before 9 p.m. Friday night, but the suspect and the vehicle were found later, according to police.

A 26-year-old Fergus Falls man was reportedly trying to buy a vehicle from CarMart. At some point, video surveillance showed he took the keys to the truck from the office.

Officers went to the man’s residence in the 500 block of West Cavour Avenue, which is near CarMart, and recovered the vehicle around 12:30 p.m. Saturday, about a half hour after the report was made.

The suspect was arrested and taken to jail.

    So the suspect returned the truck him-smelf??? This headline is terrible. Maybe… “Suspect arrested for stealing truck from dealer”
