Police in Iowa say a man stole a vehicle and drove hundreds of miles south because he wanted to escape the cold weather.

Harold Schneider faces one count of first-degree theft.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office says Schneider allegedly stole a jeep on New Year's Eve from a residence in Iowa City. He was caught days later about 600 miles south in Mississippi.

Schneider told police he stole the jeep because he was tired of the cold and snow and wanted to go south where it was warm.

Schneider remains in jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond.
