Gordon 911 advised that the prowler left the residence and was driving a black Chevrolet truck with tag RTF8013. The deputy met with the complainant, who stated that the black in color Chevrolet S10 pulled up to his residence, and a white male got out of the truck. The male approached his garage before being confronted. The complainant stated that the white male jumped in his truck and drove away in a hurry after asking for Tyler. The deputy left the residence and checked the area for the vehicle. While the deputy was at the stop sign at Farmville Road, she observed a white male driving a Black Chevrolet S10 behind her at the stop sign.
