Wesley Winston stole a car because his feet were sore
Wesley John Winston, 21, stole a car last Friday around 1:30 a.m. Unfortunately for Winston, it was a bait car parked by police.
The 1995 Nissan Pathfinder was parked at LaSalle Avenue South and 14th Street and came with a silent alarm, GPS, and internal video surveillance.
Less than 10 minutes after Winston pulled off in the car, cops stopped him and placed the young man under arrest. "Man, I should have just walked home but my feet were sore," Winston said, according to police.
Winston has been charged with felony theft of a motor vehicle, according to a criminal complaint filed in Hennepin County.
He faces a maximum five years in prison.
