MIDDLESBORO, Ky. (AP) - Bell County Judge-Executive Albey Brock left his official vehicle outside the courthouse, but noticed it wasn't where he parked it after coming back outside.

Turns out, someone stole the green Jeep Patriot on Thursday. Bell County Deputy Sheriff Shane Stewart says the vehicle, which had bumpers and doors emblazoned with "Bell County Fiscal Court" on it, was found on fire later in the day.

Brock told The Daily News he parked the Jeep around noon, but couldn't find in an hour later. Stewart says it is unusual for a vehicle to go missing from the courthouse square.

Brock says the case proves "nothing is safe" when an official vehicle can be stolen from in front of the courthouse.

The case is under investigation and is being treated as arson.
