Suspicious looking Tennessee park ranger

If you are a Tennesse park ranger, then you may want to think twice about driving outside the park in uniform or you may have to eat the pavement looking down the barrel of a state troopers gun.

Police are looking for a man who broke into a state park ranger's home and stole his uniform, gun and truck, which is equipped with emergency lights and a siren. WSMV-TV reports state troopers were trying to pull over Jerry Rowland Wednesday night near Chapel Hill, about 35 miles south of Nashville, when Rowland crashed into a guardrail and ran into the woods. Henry Horton State Park Ranger Shane Petty says Rowland broke intoanother ranger's home and then his own, taking the uniform, gun and truck.

Authorities are asking residents to call police if they see a park ranger driving outside of a state park or acting suspiciously.

Note to self: Lock up gun and truck keys when out berry-picking.
