A man who police said got into a number of vehicles parked outside a Gainesville car repair business to steal items was arrested after falling asleep in one of the cars.
Charles Adams, 46, was arrested on Tuesday after Gainesville police looked at surveillance video taken at Advanced Auto Repair, 1224 E University Ave.
The video showed that on Aug. 29 at around 1 a.m., Adams entered six vehicles at the business and took a battery and some change from one of them, according to a report.
The morning after the burglaries, a witness found Adams sleeping in one of the vehicles and notified the police.
Police looked at the video on Tuesday and brought charges against Adams, who was already in custody on separate burglary charges, the report said. He was being held at the Alachua County jail on Wednesday on $87,000 bond on six counts of burglary to a car, two counts of petty theft and one count of burglary to a dwelling.
