Bowling Green police arrested a Missouri man after learning that a truck he was driving was reported stolen from Missouri.

According to an arrest citation, Bowling Green Police Department officers were called about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday to Best Buy, 1875 Campbell Lane, regarding a suspicious man reportedly looking into vehicles in the store’s parking lot.

A customer who notified an employee there provided a license plate number and description of a white Ford F-150 that the man appeared to be driving, and police learned the vehicle was reported stolen during a burglary in Missouri.

Officers stopped the vehicle and detained Jared Brian Schnetzler, 38, of Boonville, Mo.

Schnetzler asked for an attorney and was not questioned.

Police found a half-full beer bottle in the truck, according to the arrest citation.

Schnetzler was arrested on charges of receiving stolen property valued at greater than $10,000 and possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle.
