The truck’s owner stated on social media that he had given Richard Davis, of Natchez, who he thought to be homeless, a place to stay, bought him a phone and helped him get a job when Davis allegedly took off without a word in the middle of the night in the truck and didn’t return.

Adams County Sheriff Travis Patten said one of his deputies spotted the vehicle driving down Morgantown Road at approximately 1:30 a.m. Sunday and conducted a traffic stop at Gamberi Feed & Farm Supply.
