Deputies lay down the law: Men who allegedly stole chip truck not Frito go

Two men were arrested on suspicion of stealing a Frito-Lay truck Friday in Bellflower.

The truck was reported stolen about 6 a.m. and not long after, a deputy spotted the truck rumbling down a street with the tailgate down, said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Thomas Vernola.

When the deputy pulled up behind the vehicle, the truck turned down a residential street in Paramount and hit several parked cars and crashed, Vernola said.

The driver jumped out and ran but was caught not far away. A passenger was arrested at the scene, Vernola said.

The suspects' identities were not immediately available.

They were booked on suspicion of grand theft.
