PORT CHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — A theater manager says the stuffed armadillo that was stolen from Willie Nelson's band after a show in suburban New York has been returned unharmed.

He says the band isn't pressing charges.

The toy critter, known to the band as Ol' Dillo, disappeared from the stage after a Sept. 19 concert at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester. Grainy video showed a woman snatching it away.

General manager Tom Bailey says a different woman brought the armadillo to the box office Friday morning in a sealed box. She did not identify herself.

Bailey says the armadillo was a treasured possession of Nelson's monitor engineer, Aaron Foye.

Bailey says theater staffers believe they know who stole the armadillo. But he says Nelson's road manager said Foye would not press charges.
