A man who police say tried to sell a truck through a mobile app was arrested Wednesday after police found the attempted sale involved a stolen vehicle, according to the League City Police Department.

Isaiah Guerrero, 17, of Houston, was arrested Tuesday and accused of theft of property between $2,500 and $30,000, according to police.

Guerrero was approached by police while he and another man were in a parking lot at an apartment complex in the 1700 block of W. Walker Street about 6:45 p.m. on Wednesday, according to a police complaint.

Guerrero was attempting to sell a truck to an older man in the parking lot, and had used a phone application to arrange the sale, according to the complaint.

Police searched Guerrero and found he had a forged title certificate, as well as a sales sticker from Gay Family Auto tucked into his pants, according to the complaint.

Police called the Dickinson dealership and confirmed that a truck had been taken from a sale lot, according to the complaint. The theft had not yet been reported to police.

Isaiah Guerrero was held on $10,000 bond, according to court records. He was still in custody at the Galveston County Jail on Friday afternoon, according to jail records.
