A Minnesota man was arrested after stealing a car then calling the victim for help starting it.
The SC Times reports that Edward Leroy Wilson drove away in a car that was auto-started from inside an area Walmart. The victim told police she started the car from inside the store to warm it up.
Video footage shows him driving away in the car in the late evening. Wilson drove the car an hour away before parking the car.
Hours later, the car wouldn’t restart so Wilson called the owner asking if she could restart the car for him.
After Wilson parked the car, it would not start again, so he had called to ask if she would contact someone who could start the car for him, the report said.
During the phone call, Isle police responded to a suspicious person complaint and found it was Wilson and the stolen vehicle. After being arrested, Wilson admitted to stealing the vehicle and that “he knew that it was not a good idea to get in the vehicle,” the complaint states.
Wilson potentially faces charges of grand theft auto.
