    Tiger Landscape later learned multiple expensive items were taken from their business, including a dump truck and trailer. 

    An employee also found an F-550 truck had been tampered with. Police said it was consistent with someone trying to start the truck without a key. Inside the truck, the suspect left behind something that would lead police right to him-- his wallet. 

    The wallet belonged to Steve Hall who had active warrants out of Fayette County. Police tracked him down and he was arrested.
