Anchorage, AK (AP) - A man driving a stolen vehicle in Anchorage was caught by the original owner and eventually brought into custody by police.

Cody Iverson, 23-years-old of Anchorage was spotted Wednesday afternoon at an east-side gas station by the owner of the truck.

Iverson tossed the gun while running and was eventually captured by police.

Iverson had given police a false name, but upon learning his true identity, he was taken into custody on two felony warrants. A female passenger is also being charged with joyriding.
