Man nabbed for breaking into car as cops watched

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — A man who had his eyes on some cars in a Fayetteville parking lot missed the two he should’ve seen — the two from the Fayetteville Police Department.

The Fayetteville Observer reports that 35-year-old Kendrick Dion McArthur was arrested and charged after two uniformed officers recovering a stolen car watched him break into another vehicle in a Walmart parking lot.

Police spokesman Gavin MacRoberts said the officers saw a man fidgeting with keys near a sport utility vehicle. MacRoberts said the man then opened the door to a silver car next to the SUV and took several items out of it. One officer walked over to the man, took the property and handcuffed him.

Bail for McArthur was set at $10,000. It wasn’t known if McArthur has an attorney.
