Per her arrest report, 22 year old Cynthia Pitts was a passenger in a truck stolen from a Knox County dealership on July 15. The report states that Pitts left the dealership with Travis Smith, who reportedly drove the stolen 2015 pickup. Smith is 28 and has an address in Parma, Ohio. Pitts allegedly “continued to facilitate the theft of the vehicle by advising Smith of [law enforcement] attempting to locate him.”


Pitts was arrested by the Kentucky State Police around 9:40 p.m. for theft $10,000 or more, less than $1,000,000 and lodged in the Knox County Detention Center. She was released on a $10,000 surety bond following her arraignment on Monday. She is due back in court on July 27.


Tim Short Auto Mall stated they would provide a reward for information leading to the recovery of the truck. Anyone with information should contact KSP Post 10 at 606-573-3131.
