TOP STORY >> Thief leaves hat behind

 A car thief left his ball cap behind

Lonoke County sheriff’s deputies are looking for the owner of a ball cap that belongs to a car thief.

The sheriff’s office received a report Sunday that a 2000 Jeep Cherokee had been stolen from a home on Woodland Drive.

The silver four-door Jeep was stolen between 8:30 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday. Someone had also attempted to remove a stereo from a truck parked next to the Jeep.

Later on Sunday, the deputies received a report of a theft from a vehicle on Jeffrey Lane in Cabot. Hunting equipment and a .243 rifle were stolen. The thief also tried to steal a four-wheeler from the home, but it ran out of gas in a nearby field.

That’s where deputies recovered the cap that has a Mickey Mouse print on it. Other items found are being processed for fingerprints.

The sheriff’s office is asking anyone with information about the case to call 501-676-3000.
