WRENTHAM (CBS) — A 48-year-old man will face charges after he allegedly stole a truck owned by the Boston Water and Sewer Commission and led Mass. State Police on a chase that ended in Westport.

Boston Police broadcasted a description of the stolen water truck around 12:20 p.m. on Friday, and said the truck’s GPS placed it on Interstate 495 in Wrentham.

Mass. State Police troopers tried to pull the truck over after finding it in Franklin, a statement from State Police said. Rhode Island State Police were notified that the pursuit might cross state lines when the truck went exited onto I-95 South.

State Police said the truck was followed by Rhode Island troopers until returning to Mass. on Route 195 in Seekonk.

The driver finally stopped in Westport several minutes after getting a flat tire from a device deployed by a Mass. State Police trooper. The man was taken to Charlton Memorial Hospital for an evaluation. He will be summonsed to court at a later date.

    the piece of garbage should not have stolen the truck, but was it left running unattended? If so the operator should be fired.
