NATCHEZ — A quick trip to a Natchez gas station turned one man’s white Cadillac DeVille into a hot ride — in more ways than one.

Natchez Police Detective Jerry Ford said a man left the keys to his 2005 Cadillac and his doors unlocked while inside the Exxon on North Shields Lane shortly before 7 p.m. Monday.

The man came outside to find his car stolen, and police later found the vehicle on fire on Liberty Road.
