Police responded to a business on Marengo Street near College Street after a truck owner called and said his truck was stolen from behind his work while he was inside. 

Police said they were able to track the truck to the Walmart in Muscle Shoals. When Muscle Shoals police arrived, they said they found Joshua Luke Letson, 29, of Moulton, and Aldani Faith Byrd, 24, of Florence, in the truck.

Letson and Byrd were both charged with first-degree receiving stolen property and jailed in the Lauderdale County Detention Center on $2,500 bonds.
