ROCHESTER, Minn. – One of two trucks stolen over the week from Oronoco Auto Parts has been recovered, Rochester police say.

An officer was patrolling around Walmart South just before 10 p.m. when he saw a Chevy Silverado pickup truck he recognized and confirmed as stolen through the license plates.

The officer called for backup and they arrested 18-year-old Logan Johnson, of Rochester, in the parking lot. Inside the truck, they found stolen property that was apparently taken from Walmart earlier that evening, including car repair equipment and an air pistol.
