PADUCAH - A stolen SUV was recovered and a Paducah, Kentucky man was arrested this morning with help from the truck's owner.

Jason Siener, the owner of Beltine Electric Co., called the police after discovering his camouflage 2000 GMC SUV had been stolen. One of his employees located the vehicle parked outside Double D's Bar on 6th Street and blocked the truck in after calling police.

A man, later identified as Harry Gish, approached the stolen SUV and the employee confronted him. Officers arrived minutes later and took him into custody.

During an interview, Gish told an officer that he had been looking for a vehicle to buy and "thought this would be the perfect vehicle," so he took it for a test drive.

Gish was charged with theft by unlawful taking and booked into the McCracken County Regional Jail.
