Truck Stolen by Dickens County Escapee Found?

There's reason to believe escaped Dickens County inmate Tommy Pina is no longer in the stolen Chevrolet pickup law enforcement was looking for. Sources say a truck matching the description of the one taken from Dickens County was found Saturday evening in Kent County. A passer-by noticed the truck and called the Kent County Sheriff's Office. The truck was spotted near FM 1081 and 2320. Texas Rangers as well as other law agencies were called to the scene.
