William Franklin Hill, 49, of Atlanta, GA, was caught and set back to Louisiana on a felony theft warrant obtained by Caddo Sheriff’s officials. Hill was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center after being picked up by the Caddo Sheriff’s Office Warrant’s Division in Las Vegas.

His bail is set at $100,000.
