Police were looking for a suspect who stole a pickup truck and slammed it into a Garden Grove house while making his getaway.

No one was injured in the collision, but the house in the 5300 block of Stanford Avenue sustained extensive damage, police said.

The truck was stolen when the owner left the vehicle running in front of his residence, police said. When the owner heard the truck being driven away, he and another family member attempted to give chase in another vehicle, police said.

The stolen truck’s owner arrived at the scene of the collision moments after it happened about 5:35 a.m. and called police, but the thief was nowhere to be found.

The residents were home when the vehicle crashed into the home, but they escaped injury, police said.
