PORT CHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — A missing toy armadillo with a connection to Willie Nelson has sparked a search in the New York suburbs.
The Capitol Theater's general manager says a stuffed armadillo beloved by a member of Nelson's crew was stolen from the stage after a Nelson concert last Thursday.
Tom Bailey says grainy video shows a woman walking onto the stage as the crew packs up, boldly grabbing the armadillo and sauntering off with it. He says the critter is known as Ol' Dillo and is a treasured possession of Nelson's monitor engineer, Aaron Foye.
Bailey says theater workers looked through more video on Tuesday in hopes of identifying the woman.
A posting on Nelson's Facebook page asks for help finding the thief. And a commenter says, "We hang armadillo thieves in Texas."
