Authorities have finally gotten a leg up, on a man charged with stealing an artificial leg.

Authorities charge Rigoberto Zarazua-Rubio never paid for a prosthetic leg that was measured and fitted for him at a Des Moines, Iowa, business in 2005.

The outstanding theft warrant was discovered after police arrested the man on a drug conspiracy charge.

Authorities add they're confiscating the artificial leg and will return it to the store.
