Man accused of breaking into vehicle at Walmart, claiming it was his
CHIEFLAND, Fla. (WGFL) —
Chiefland Police say a man broke into an SUV at a Walmart parking lot Sunday and then tried to convince police the vehicle was his.
Nebuchadnezzar E. Watson is charged with felony burglary and criminal mischief.
Police say they responded to the Walmart on North Young Boulevard Sunday night around 9:30 after an off-duty Corrections Officer told officers a man smashed the window of a gold SUV and got inside.
Officers arrived and found Watson in the rear passenger seat, according to a police report.
Police say Watson told them he just bought the vehicle but had lost his keys. Officers say he was unable to prove ownership and that the real owner came out of the store shortly after police arrived.
