Truck Theft Suspect Talked Too Much Article

A man landed himself in jail by talking too much.

Police pulled over a 2006 tractor-trailer rig driven by Fred Fuentes, 47, of Fort Worth, TX.

Fuentes told the deputies, “I know what this is about.”

They asked him what he was talking about and he replied, “Why you stopped me.”

The deputies decided to play. Ok, why the stop?

“Because the truck is stolen,” Fuentes said.

Actually, he was being pulled over because the truck’s headlight was not working.

The deputies confirmed that the truck was indeed stolen and arrested Fuentes.

He is facing a charge of unauthorized use of a vehicle.
