    Whoever stole Melissa Madrigal's pickup truck in Corpus Christi better hope they don't wind up in court.

    Madrigal is a Nueces County magistrate judge.

    Madrigals' Ford F-150 Supercrew was stolen Wednesday from outside her mother's home in Corpus Christi.

    Her checkbook, campaign files and a gift she recently received are missing with the truck.

    She tells the Corpus Christi Caller-Times the theft bothers her but she's grateful it's not a crime where she or her mother was physically hurt.
