Lt. Craig Gleason of the Salt Lake City Police Department warned, "These things happen. It's just like locking the door to your house. Lock you car doors because you never know who's going to try your door handle."

Police later spotted the stolen truck and arrested a suspect in the carjacking. He told police he took his friend's truck to fill it with gas.
