CASTLE ROCK, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say three men accused of stealing a commercial truck loaded with about $10,000 worth of roofing shingles from a Portland, Ore., business have been arrested in Castle Rock, Wash.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/o3ffEI ) that the truck from ABC Supply Co. was equipped with GPS, which allowed officers to track it to a home.

The theft was reported early Wednesday.

Arrested were Matthew C. Chapman of Castle Rock, Wash.; a transient identified as Mathew C. Caldwell and Gene L. Dodds of Portland.

They were booked into the Cowlitz County, Wash., Jail for investigation of trafficking stolen property, theft and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
