Cessna Pilot Spots Thief at His Own House He foils theft after spying suspicious man from the air By Rob Quinn, Newser Staff Posted Jan 2, 2013 12:03 AM CST 16 comments Comments Gary Haines, 59, was arrested for grand theft. (Glade County Sheriff's Office) (Newser) – A sharp-eyed pilot foiled a theft at his Florida home after spotting a suspicious character from the air during a fly-by. After seeing an unfamiliar truck in his driveway, David Zehntner watched a man peer into his windows before driving off with his trailer attached to a pickup, NBC reports. He called police as he followed the truck down a highway; they stopped Gary Robert Haines, 59, and charged him with grand theft. "The gentleman had a plane at several points circling him at close altitude and never thought I guess that somebody might be watching," says Zehntner. Police found a loaded rifle in Haines' truck.
