The Insane Story of How This Kids Drawing Helped Solve A Crime

Police say a nine-year-old girl has helped them track down a porch pirate after she drew a sketch of the suspect's red pickup truck. 

Officers from the Springville Police Department in Utah were investigating a spate of package thefts from the front doors of homes when they spoke to the young witness. 

Cpl. Curtis of the force asked the youngster if she had noticed any vehicles nearby.

He ended up getting a 'very well drawn' picture of a truck according to the department's Facebook page.  

The sketch drawn by the girl was a red pickup truck, riddled with dents on the side and a rack in the rear of the truck. 

Authorities were then able to find the truck which had also been captured on surveillance cameras near the scene of the crime. 

As the youngster had portrayed in her drawing, the truck was indeed riddled with dents in the bodywork and had a distinctive metal rack frame sitting on the rear.
