To get to the other side?

Even without the Stupid Question, this is a candidate for Least Informative Follow-up of the (no longer young) Year.  Let's proceed to the fourth paragraph:

Police confirmed Monday that a sixth Ram truck was found around 2:30 p.m. Saturday near Warren and Outer Drive in Dearborn Heights. No damage was done to the vehicle, according to the police report.
The other trucks have been found in Detroit, some stripped or damaged, some still in new condition. A pocket Bible was found on the driver's seat of one of the trucks.

Given that the "when" of Tuesday's story is "erm, Saturday," you can see leading with the Bible. (Assuming you didn't want to put any further effort into finding out about an arrest that apparently happened Saturday.) But before putting it in the headline, should we wonder for a moment if the pocket that the pocket Bible fell out of might have belonged to -- oh, a factory worker who parked the soon-to-be-stolen Ram?
