Willie Nelson Searches for Toy Armadillo Stolen After NY Concert

A posting on the singer's Facebook page shows video of the alleged thief

A missing armadillo with a connection to Willie Nelson has sparked a search in Westchester. 

The Capitol Theater's general manager says a stuffed armadillo, beloved by a member of Nelson's crew, was filched from the stage after a Nelson concert last Thursday.

Tom Bailey says grainy video shows a woman walking onto the stage as the crew packs up, boldly grabbing the armadillo and sauntering off with it. He says the critter is known as Ol' Dillo and is a treasured possession of Aaron Foye, Nelson's monitor engineer.

Bailey says theater workers were looking through more video Tuesday in hopes of identifying the woman.

On Nelson's Facebook page, a posting asks for help finding the thief. And a commenter says, "We hang armadillo thieves in Texas."
