A guy is facing charges after police say they tracked him in a stolen FedEx truck and then arrested him when he stopped to flee, but couldn't get the door open.

The truck was reported stolen from south Columbus Tuesday afternoon. A Columbus Police helicopter crew spotted it and followed until officers in cruisers could catch up. Officers say the suspect then stopped and tried to run by going out of the back cargo door, but he couldn't open it.

Officers haven't released information about the suspect yet, but say he's charged with receiving stolen property. They say they can't charge him with theft of the truck right now because they don't have a witness from the scene.
