Eric P. Martin, 29-year-old Anderson resident, was in custody at the Adams County Jail this morning after being arrested Wednesday afternoon in an unusual incident.
Adams County Chief Deputy Sheriff Eric Beer, off duty and in his pickup truck, saw a man running from the St. Vincent dePaul store on Village Green Drive. As Beer drove around the Baymont Inn to check on the man, a car run into the side of his vehicle.
The driver of the car jumped out, help up his hands and said, "You got me." It was the same person Beer had seen running, and the man allegedly confessed to stealing the car he was driving in Anderson.
