BAKER CITY, Ore. -- Oregon State Police say a Kuna man has been arrested after two runaway Longview, Wash., girls were found in his pickup truck, one of them hiding beneath a seat.

Police say a trooper stopped the extended-cab pickup Saturday morning on Interstate 84 near Baker City after he saw one of the 14-year-old girls not using a seat belt. They say the driver, 19-year-old Shawn Matthew Grady, also was seen making lane changes without signaling.

Police say the girl gave a false name before saying her true identity and that she was a runaway. She also told troopers the other girl was hiding beneath the truck's back seat.

The girls were turned over to Oregon Department of Human Services workers, who were taking them to relatives. Police say Grady was booked into the Baker County Jail for investigation of first-degree custodial interference.
