Officers were called to the WinCo Foods on SW Oak Street around 3:45 a.m. after a man reported that the street cleaner he was using to clean the store's parking lot was stolen, KGW reported.

The victim, a private contractor, told police that he left the Isuzu NPR street sweeper running after he got out of the vehicle to clean an area that the street sweeper couldn't reach. While he was outside the vehicle, 33-year-old Tyler Haguewood jumped into the street sweeper and drove off, Hillsboro police said.
