A flat tire turned out to be the downfall of a vehicle thief.
Guelph police were called to a home on Park Avenue near Suffolk Street West around 8 a.m. Tuesday.
They say they were informed by police in another jurisdiction that they had recovered a pickup truck later that day matching the description of the one they were looking for.
Investigators say that the vehicle was found at the side of a road with a flat tire, and that the driver was seen trying to change the tire.
A 29-year-old man from Guelph was arrested and held for a bail hearing.
