He told KLTV: "I looked down, and sure enough, there was a truck hooked onto a trailer, and guys were loading stuff up."
A stunned Lynn quickly got on the phone to the cops and the to his uncle, who raced round to the home.
Then they flew down low over his home in a bid to put them off.
He recalled: "It didn't seem to faze them that we were buzzing over in an airplane; we got down pretty low."
Craighead County Sheriff's deputy Phillip Wheaton said the two men unloaded the trailer and left the scene when the uncle arrived.
But the pilot and Lynn's uncle followed them until they were stopped near Bay, AR, by Wheaton and two other officers.
