A Lake City man was arrested on theft charges after he was caught in a stolen car on Main Street in Jacksboro.
On Sept. 23, Jacksboro Officer James Skeans received a be on the look out call for a stolen 2001 blue Toyota Camry, the Jacksboro Police report said.
Skeans observed the car on Main Street and found the tag number matched that of the stolen vehicle. Skeans stopped the car, asking to see Steven Patrick Hill’s driver license, according to the report.
