Two Modesto men were arrested early Thursday after they were found in a stolen pickup found parked on the campus of La Rosa Elementary School.
Officer Brian Petersen was completing a report at 3:49 a.m. when he saw a smaller white pickup drive into the school parking lot. He investigated why the two men were parked at the campus when it was closed. He learned that the pickup had been reported stolen in Modesto. After backup officers arrived, Juan Telles, 48, and Elodio Valencia, 41 both of Modesto, were both arrested and booked for vehicle theft and possession of stolen property.
The owner of the truck responded to the scene and retrieved their vehicle.
