A man with a load of trucks was arrested and charged with possession of stolen vehicles.Chicago police say they received a call about a suspicious man in the 3700 block of South Albany Avenue Tuesday night.

When officers arrived at the scene, they spotted the man in a Chevrolet pick-up truck with no license plates.

It turns out the truck was stolen-and so were seven other trucks and a motorcycle parked on the same street.

All the vehicles had been stolen over the last year.

Police say 40-year-old Jose Nevarez of Mexico was apparently planning to load them onto a trailer and drive them to Texas.

At least four of the stolen vehicles have now been returned to their owners.
