Naked man caught on video stealing truck with swan

LAKELAND, Fla. – A Florida mystery is so complex, it needs to a step-by-step explanation:

  • 1. Man steals truck
  • 2. Swan sculpture was in back of truck
  • 3. Man was naked
  • 4. Truck was located
  • 5.  Man was arrested
  • 6. Swan still missing

The caper swung into motion on the morning of May 19 in Lakeland.

The suspect, Ronald Thompson, is seen on security video breaking into Lakeland Cold Storage completely naked.

While wearing his birthday suit, Thompson steals the truck and drives off the property. The swan sculpture was in the back of the truck at the time of the theft.

Thompson was later arrested in Hillsborough County, while deputies were able to recover the truck.

However, the swan sculpture is still missing and the owner is hoping someone with a keen eye for things can offer a lead to its whereabouts.
