VALLES MINES, Mo. (AP) - Charges are pending against a would-be truck thief in eastern Missouri after the victim climbed on a tractor to chase him down.

KTVI-TV (https://bit.ly/1AIlkzK ) reports that police credit Zanescot Kester with not only catching the suspect, but recovering two stolen trucks.

Kester was in a rural area on May 21, loading wood into his pickup with his tractor. He was moving a log when he noticed the truck pulling away.

Kester hopped onto the tractor and gave chase, calling the sheriff’s department in the process.

Police say the suspect took Kester’s truck to try and free another pickup that was stuck. It turned out that truck had been stolen, too.

Kester cornered the suspect until police arrived. Both he and the other victim have their trucks back.
