ECTOR COUNTY - Stealing a truck with an On-Star system proved to be a bad idea for not one but two suspected car thieves.

Ector County deputies got a call from On-Star saying a truck had been reported stolen and they were tracking it.

State Troopers found it and another stolen pickup.

We're told one of the drivers, 23-year-old Joseph Kong, took off and lead troopers on a high speed chase.

Long bailed out of the truck on Maruene Avenue and ran but was quickly caught.

The driver of the other stolen truck, 21-year-old John McClellan, was arrested by deputies.
