A man is in custody after State Police say he stole a big rig from a Duncansville business.
 
It happened around 3:45 Sunday afternoon at Burchfield Truck Sales. Troopers say a security officer saw the truck being stolen and followed it. The suspect led police on a pursuit that came to an end 35 miles away along Piney Ridge Road in Huntingdon County. Troopers had to use spike strips to stop the chase. The truck sustained about $4,000 in damage.
