Officers spot men torching way into truck

11 Sep

COSTA MESA – Two men were trying to torch their way into a plumber’s truck Wednesday morning, and then fled when officers on patrol spotted them, officials said.

One man was taken into custody and Costa Mesa police were searching for a second after a foot pursuit near Wintergreen Place and Mace Avenue, said Sgt. Brent McKinley of the Costa Mesa Police Department.

Officers on patrol spotted the men just after 5 a.m. using a cutting torch on the truck, McKinley said. The two men tried to flee in a minivan, McKinley said.

“They tried to drive away, but couldn’t make a turn,” he said.

The men then ran away from officers in different directions.

The identity of the man in custody was not immediately available.
