Warren County Sheriff’s investigators are questioning a man in connection with the reported theft of a 2008 Cadillac SUV from Jackson that was stopped on Interstate 20.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said the incident occurred about 11:45 a.m. Thursday. Warren County authorities received a call from a Clinton police officer who said a record check of the car’s tag indicated it was reported stolen.

By the time the officer reached the car, however, it was outside the Clinton city limits and he notified Warren County, where several sheriff’s deputies and two Mississippi Highway Patrol troopers stopped the car on Interstate 20 at the 12-mile marker.
