TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - Early this morning the Tucson Police Department responded to the area of Littletown to assist the DPS Auto Theft Task Force (ATTF) on a call.

ATTF followed what they believed to be a stolen truck to a nearby gas station where TPD helped detain the driver. Officials say the driver lied about his name and authorities eventually learned the suspect was wanted on a felony auto theft warrant.

Officers say they found a large amount of cash, drugs, stolen property and two firearms inside the vehicle.
