An ex-actor who co-starred in a Jack Black movie when he was a teenager was recently accused of four incidents where musical instruments were taken from stores and pawned for cash.

At the end of January, a North Florida music store called in to report the theft of an $800 Les Paul electric guitar and issued a description of the suspect and the serial number of the instrument to the authorities.

In February, the police department was furnished information from the County Sheriff’s Office informing them that about 90 minutes after the alleged theft a pawn shop had purchased a guitar with the same serial number as the Les Paul that was reported stolen.

A man who authorities believe has been a part of a theft ring that has been stealing high-end coolers from retailers and then profiting by selling them online has been arrested as one of the suspects involved in the operation.

After a fire alarm at the Academy Sports and Outdoors store was triggered on February 8, the employees realized that approximately $1200 worth of coolers went missing from their inventory. The surveillance video in the establishment showed two men taking Yeti brand coolers out of the emergency exit door.

The Selma police were notified and began looking into the incident, and they released a bulletin alerting law enforcement agencies throughout Texas. Detectives in Fort Worth reported that they recognized the suspects, who are believed to be the same men that were a part of several other thefts of the same nature in eight other counties; six in Texas and two in Louisiana.
