Police say Wilson had driven the vehicle more than an hour away, but ran into trouble restarting the car after he had parked it.

About 10:30 p.m. -- less than two hours after surveillance images showed the car leaving the lot --  the owner received a call from a woman who told her that a man was asking questions about the vehicle, the St. Cloud Times reported.

Wilson, who gave a fake name, then spoke to the owner directly, and asked if she could find someone to start the car for him, police said.

Officers responding to a suspicious person call identified Wilson and the stolen vehicle during Wilson's conversation with the owner, according to local reports, and took Wilson into custody.

He reportedly admitted to the crime and told officers "he knew it was not a good idea to get the vehicle," according to a criminal complaint filed against him.
