Chico police arrest a suspected vehicle thief. Officers found a silver Toyota Tundra on Cameo Drive in north Chico before 10 am Tuesday that they believed was recently stolen. Officers watched a man they recognized as 46-year-old Eugene Needham leave the truck and enter an apartment. The officers investigated further and discovered that the pickup had indeed been reported stolen. The Needham surrendered to authorities a short time later. Officers reportedly found checks and social security cards from at least two recent burglaries. Burglary tools and methamphetamine were also allegedly found in Needham's possession.
