PORT CHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — It’s a stage prop with strong ties to Willie Nelson. And the country music star is itching to get it back.
Someone made off with a stuffed armadillo that belongs to a member of Nelson’s sound crew.
The theft took place after the band performed in Port Chester, New York last week.
Grainy video taken at the theater showed a woman walking onstage as the crew was working and apparently taking the toy.
Authorities are looking over the video to see if they can get a better look at the woman.
Meanwhile, a posting on Nelson’s Facebook page asked for help finding the thief. One person who commented on the rip-off says: “We hang armadillo thieves in Texas.”
