An officer spotted a man in a maroon pickup truck just after midnight Monday behind National Water Works on Liberty Drive. When the officer approached, the man tried to hide.

The officer noticed the man had several pallets in the back of his truck and asked about them. The man told the officer he had pulled over because the wind nearly blew the pallets out of the truck.

Parker says The officer didn't arrest the man, however the case is still under investigation and an arrest could be pending.
