A Good Samaritan called police at 12:53 a.m. and reported seeing a lone man loading appliances into a gray Chevrolet pickup truck from a house in the 100 block of Naples Street, according to Chula Vista police.
A short time later, a patrol officer spotted a truck matching the caller's description in the 900 block of Nacion Avenue and detained the driver, Chula Vista police spokesman Bernard Gonzales said.
