Police said the truck was reported stolen from a Shell station at 8801 NE Birmingham Road at 8:45 a.m.

A FedEx employee said she filled the truck up with gas and went inside to pay, leaving the keys inside. She said the truck was gone when she came back outside.

Police started following it near Interstate 435 and Eastwood Trafficway. The chase wound through the east side of Kansas City.

At one point, the truck stopped at a traffic light and police officers pulled up, guns drawn, but the truck sped away.

The truck has driven the wrong way down some streets, including Ward Parkway.

The chase ended after police were able to immobilize the truck. Sparks were seeing flying from the truck as it tried to accelerate.

The driver got out of the truck, surrendered and was taken into custody near 71st Street and Belinder Avenue in Prairie Village, Kan. Police identified him as Caleb M. Ownby, 19, of Kansas City.

"I think that's pretty wild," said Doug Fishel, who lives in the area where the chase ended. "We hear about people following FedEx trucks and stealing packages and to be careful this time of year, but I've never heard of someone just stealing a whole truck."

FedEx employees, many of whom had been working all day, worked late into the night to deliver the packages that had been on the truck to their destinations.

Driver Anthony Hill expressed his thanks to the police for finding the vehicle.

FedEx issued a statement about the incident.

"We can confirm the FedEx Home Delivery vehicle was stolen earlier today, and we are grateful for local law enforcement and their efforts in helping us retrieve it. We are cooperating fully with the authorities, but, as the investigation remains ongoing, we have no other information to share at this time," the statement said.
