A witness saw Knuffke drive off, and police spotted him driving near I-10 and Tangerine. Knuffke abandoned the vehicle in a farm field near Breakers Water Park, then found him hiding in the field. Police found decorations, as well as other items that were reported stolen from different homes.

Police are looking to return two Yoda decorations to their unknown owners.

Knuffke faces theft charges and could face additional charges.
