A teenager caught driving a stolen truck was actually in his second stolen vehicle of the night, police say.

They originally said that the teen had been arrested after a foot chase during which the teen had ditched a large knife.

Police had pulled the 15-year-old boy over Monday morning at 5:20 a.m. after they spotted him behind the wheel of a 2015 GMC pickup truck — a truck that turned out to have been stolen from Minnedosa.

The teen ran from the police after the pulled him over in the 1900-block of Richmond Avenue, in Brandon, and that's when he ditched the knife, police say.

Although he was charged with theft of motor vehicle, resisting arrest, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and also for driving without a driver’s licence and having no liability insurance, police said Tuesday morning that that wasn't all.

Later Monday afternoon, police got a complaint from a resident of Otter Bay who said that her vehicle had also been stolen. Although it was returned, she said it was in a different spot in her driveway, there was some damage to it, as well as damage to things that were inside.

Police say it was the same 15-year-old who was responsible. He was still in custody from the earlier truck theft, but was rearrested and police laid new charges.

Along with the earlier charges, he'll face a new charge of vehicle theft, as well as mischief to property and theft under $5,000.

The suspect was to appear in court on Tuesday.
