Orem police have arrested an 18-year-old man after allegedly finding him in possession of a stolen U-Haul van and more than $14,000 in goods purchased with a bad check.
Orem police Sgt. Craig Martinez said Thursday that the investigation began Tuesday when officers responded to a check fraud complaint at Park Sports at 644 N. State St. The suspect purportedly had written a check for more than $4,000 on an account that later was learned to have been closed.
The man was caught by the store's video security camera, and an employee saw him driving away with a U-Haul truck bearing Arizona plates.
