A Franklin County Deputy acting on a hunch ended up arresting the driver of a stolen truck at the gas station at 4th and Stearman in Pasco, near Bergstrom Aircraft.

Deputy Bolanos saw what initially appeared to be a truck parked by the pumps, possibly unoccupied. Getting closer, she saw a man in the driver's seat. After running the plates, turns out the vehicle was reported stolen out of Grant County. The driver was arrested, and the vehicle will be returned to it's owner.

Probably a good idea, if you're driving a swiped vehicle, don't park it or loiter in areas where 'average' people wouldn't be hanging out.
