Officials say someone called 911 at 5:37 p.m. to report a truck had just been stolen from the parking lot at 888 Vernon Valley Dr. in Linn County.

Marion Police chased the truck north on Highway 13 to where it meets Highway 151.  That's where authorities say 42-year-old Phillip Knight ditched the truck and was arrested without incident. 

Knight is charged with operation without consent, attempting to elude and interference with official acts.

The incident remains under investigation by the Linn County Sheriff's Office.
