Justin David Brown, 38, was arrested Sunday following a 20-minute chase that reached a top speed of 18 mph on the Hardy Toll Road, KPRC-TV reported.

Sheriff Ed Gonzalez initially asked the public via Twitter if anyone was missing a green tractor, but responding deputies quickly realized the vehicle in use was actually a green forklift.

Brown was arrested without incident, and deputies determined the forklift was, in fact, stolen. The equipment’s owner has since been located, Gonzalez confirmed via Twitter.
