HC 22 11 7HENDERSON, Ky. (11/7/17) — A Henderson man's cell phone navigaton app led to his arrest in connection to a vehicle recently reported stolen from a woman at a Meadow Street home.

According to Henderson Police Department, the car owner told officers Lucky Smalls, 41, was at the Meadow Street home earlier in the day Oct. 27, and made threats about damaging her property. Later that night, her vehicle was found wrecked in Community Park along Madison Street.

Police said Smalls was nowhere to be found after finding the wrecked car.

Detectives were given permission to search Smalls’ room at his apartment Nov. 1. Officers reported locating items taken from the vehicle.

During an HPD interview, Smalls showed detectives a maps app on his phone, which showed him at home during the alleged theft, according to the arrest report. Detectives checked the navigation on his phone, which showed the device was at Community Park at the time the vehicle was stolen and located. That’s when Smalls requested an attorney.

Smalls was charged with theft by unlawful taking/automobie (more than $10,000).
