A Redding man was arrested early Tuesday morning after he reportedly burglarized a Redding home and then stole a pickup truck from the same house.

Police say 26-year-old Matthew Ryan Bush broke into a woman's home on Dominion Drive, then stole the woman's Toyota Tacoma.

Officer spotted Bush driving the Tacoma near Eastside Road and Sacramento Drive just moments after the theft was reported. When Redding police attempted to stop the vehicle, Bush fled the scene on the foot.

A K-9 unit was called for and the dog found Bush hiding in a nearby back yard just a few minutes later.

Bush was taken to a local hospital for medical clearance and then booked into the Shasta County Jail on suspicion of residential burglary, vehicle theft, possession of stolen property, and resisting arrest.
