KEY LARGO, Fla. – Congressmen in the Florida Keys say they arrested an Arkansas man after witnesses said he tried to steal a food truck Monday morning.
Deputies arrested Steven Wayne McClelland, 42, of Mountain View, Arkansas, on counts of attempted grand larceny of a motor vehicle, possession of amphetamines and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Monroe County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Adam Linhardt said deputies responded to a parking lot in block 10100 of the Overseas Highway on Key Largo around 6 a.m. and found McClelland with his vehicle backing up in front of the food truck.
He later admitted trying to steal it, Linhardt said.
“Witnesses reported seeing a man acting erratically while driving around a food truck,” Linhardt said. “[They]stated that it appeared that he was trying to steal the food truck.”
Deputies found a small amount of methamphetamine in a glass pipe after searching McClelland and took him to jail, Linhardt said.
He is expected to be charged on December 13.
