TULSA (AP) - A man who saw his pickup truck being stolen jumped into the bed of the moving vehicle, kicked out the back window and crawled into the cab to stop the thief.

Police said the woman who stole the truck then jumped out and hopped into her boyfriend's car, which the truck owner chased until officers intervened.

Trenity Sue Baker was booked into the Tulsa Jail at 3 a.m. Tuesday. The 18-year-old Tulsa woman is facing complaints of larceny of an automobile and leaving the scene of property damage.

Alonzo Johnson said his truck was stolen after he left it running while he was inside a QuikTrip store.
