Man Asks Police for Help with Lockout, Gets Locked Up

He probably should have just called AAA instead. 

A fugitive from West Virginia was arrested Friday after he asked police for help because he'd locked himself out of his rental vehicle.

At 1:49 p.m., police responded to TD Bank on College Drive for a report of a disoriented man in the parking lot. There, officers found 35-year-old Charles Willis, who asked them for help getting into his locked vehicle. 

Once police unlocked the car, they found hundreds of illegally obtained prescription drugs and several hypodermic needles, according to a news release.

Policed determined that Willis was wanted in West Virginia by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force for violation of probation, according to the release. 

Willis, of the 200 block of Monticello Avenue in Clarksburg, WV, was charged with four counts of unlawful possession of a controlled dangerous substance (CDS); one third-degree count of possession of CDS with intent to distribute; one count of unlawful possession of a hypodermic needles, a disorderly persons offense; and one count of being a fugitive from justice.

He was held in the Camden County Jail in lieu of $125,000 full cash bail.
