Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - The search has ended for two pickup trucks that were stolen last weekend from an Oronoco business.
One was found the other night by a Rochester police officer who spotted it at the south Walmart store and arrested the man who had been driving the vehicle.
The other one was recovered Tuesday - after being spotted by an employee of Oronoco Auto Parts, where the truck had been stolen from.
The employee was driving on Highway 52 in Rochester when he saw the truck around 3:30 p.m. He called 911 and followed it several miles as the driver headed south and exited at Marion Road.
The driver of the truck stopped at Jeff’s Little Store along Marion Road. A few moments later, officers arrived and arrested 21-year-old Patrick Mullay of Stewartville.
