NACOGDOCHES, Texas (KETK) – The Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office said they arrested a man who allegedly stole a UTV and went on a “joyride” on April 4.

Laketric Yarbrough, 47, allegedly stole the UTV from Nacogdoches County Expo Center and then went on a “brief joyride” before being found in another UTV at a nearby dealership, according to authorities.

“Yarbrough told law enforcement he needed a faster vehicle than the one taken from the expo center. He was arrested and secured in an NCSO patrol vehicle, which is in fact faster than a UTV.”
