A stolen vehicle was recovered on Wednesday after an LPD officer spotted it while driving his personal vehicle.

Police say Officer Matt Boggs recognized the 2011 black Ford F250 as stolen and began covertly following it while he contacted dispatch.

Boggs was able to follow the vehicle to a vacant lot at 15th & Ave. L and watch the passengers until marked units arrived.

Two suspects fled on foot when they saw the marked patrol unit. The driver, Adam Alonzo Jr., 30, was taken into custody after a short foot chase. Police are still searching for the other person.

Police say they found burglary tools, along with suspected stolen property, inside the vehicle.
