Mesa County, Colo. -- The first report was made on September 8, for a 1999 Dodge Durango that had been stolen from a driveway in the 2900 block of D Road, Grand Junction. In the late morning of September 9, deputies were called to the same address on D Road, after the vehicle owner has confronted his son about stealing the Dodge Durango, the day prior. The son and suspect, Martin Caballero-Magana, 21, ran from the home before deputies could arrive.

The Durango was located and ultimately the suspect was also arrested after attempting to hide in a corn field and then behind a fence in a separate field. Martin was wearing a tank top and boxer shorts with no shoes when deputies arrested him. They located personal items of Martin's in the stolen Durango, along with just over 4 grams of methamphetamine. 

Martin was booked into the Mesa County Detention Facility on an outstanding warrant, along with new charges of:
