Man pursues his stolen truck
When Covington police arrived at the QuikTrip on Hwy. 278 in reference to a stolen auto, Joel Simpson told the officer that he left the vehicle running in the parking lot. As he walked to the front doors of the QuikTrip, he turned to see a black male inside his vehicle, backing out of the parking space.

Simpson then chased after the vehicle through the parking lot. Then a white male who Simpson only knew as "Josh" pulled up in his white truck telling Simpson to get in.

"Josh" and Simpson followed the stolen vehicle to exit 83 on I-20. At that time, Simpson and "Josh" lost sight of the stolen vehicle.

Muffin, the poodle, stolen from Walmart parking lot
When Covington police arrived at the Walmart on Industrial Boulevard in response to a report of the theft of a dog, Karen Johnson told the officer that she let her toy poodle out to relieve itself near the Garden Center.

The dog was doing its business when Johnson's cell phone rang and she went back to the vehicle to answer it. While on the phone, Johnson noticed a small red vehicle stop, shut the door and drive away.

Johnson then realized her dog was gone. Johnson told the officer that the toy poodle's name is Muffin and she is five-years-old wearing a pink dog collar with a heart shape metal dog tag. She is champagne in color with a very curly coat and is valued at approximately $2,000.
