PORT CHESTER, N.Y. (September 24, 2013)—A search is underway in the New York suburbs are the theft of a stuffed armadillo that’s a keepsake of a member of Willie Nelson’s road crew.
The Capitol Theater's general manager says the armadillo 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, grabbing the armadillo and sauntering off with it.
He says “Ol' Dillo” 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.
"We hang armadillo thieves in Texas,” one commenter posted.
