HOUSTON – An officer reportedly caught two men in the act painting over a stolen pickup truck, Houston Police say.

Around 10:30 p.m. Sunday the officer spotted the men in a field in the 8100 block of Sunbury in northeast Houston.

The men were apparently painting over an older Dodge pickup truck, but when the officer went to talk to them they took off running.

Police say one of the men was arrested, but the other got away.
