Wanted Man Arrested After Asking Cops To Help Unlock Car In South Jersey

By Molly Daly

GLOUCESTER TWP., N.J. (CBS) – A man from West Virginia who asked police in South Jersey to help unlock his car is now locked up himself.

Gloucester Township Police were responding Friday afternoon to a call about a disoriented man in a TD Bank parking lot on College Avenue in Blackwood, New Jersey. Captain Jeff Weiserth says 35-year-old Charles Willis told officers he’d locked the keys in his rental car and asked for their help.

“Once they opened up the vehicle, they noticed a large quantity of pills scattered about the car,” Weiserth said.

Police say they also found pill bottles without labels and hypodermic needles. Further investigation yielded something else:

“They come to find out that he was wanted by the U.S. Marshall Service from West Virginia in reference to a probation violation. He was immediately taken into custody,” Weiserth said.

Willis is being held on $125,000 cash bail in the Camden County jail.
