Officers spotted the suspicious vehicle last Tuesday on Kirkland Road when they were patrolling the area. They identified the man as Eddie Santana Jr.

Santana allegedly had a six pack of Bud Light on the passenger seat. He was allegedly unable to provide his information without help from officers.
