A Lawrence man was arrested Sunday morning for allegedly taking his roommate's truck and crashing it into a parked vehicle, according to police.

Officers were called to the scene of a non-injury accident in the 800 block of Massachusetts Street around 11 a.m. Sunday, said Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley. There, they observed that a white Chevy pickup truck collided with a parked vehicle. Officers located the suspect soon after the incident.

"It was determined the truck was a work vehicle, entrusted to the suspect's roommate and owned by the roommate's employer," McKinley said.

The suspect's roommate told police that the truck was taken sometime overnight without permission, McKinley said. Inside the truck, officers discovered drug paraphernalia belonging to the suspect, according to police.

Jonathan Paul Moseley, 28, of Lawrence, was booked into Douglas County jail on suspicion of theft and possession of drug paraphernalia. He's currently being held on a $2,500 bond.
