Police say a Lincoln man did more than take a pickup for a spin during a test drive this week.

Red Star Auto of Lincoln reported a pickup had been stolen Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.

The dealership's owner says 39-year-old Scott King had taken the truck for a test drive earlier Tuesday.

Police believe King stopped during the test drive to have a copy made of the truck's key. He returned the truck to the lot, but police believe he stole it overnight using the duplicate key.

The dealership owner drove to King's address and found the truck parked about 10 blocks away.

Police arrested King, and he was still in the Lancaster County jail Thursday morning. Charges had not been filed by early Thursday morning.
