The surveillance video at the jail showed Lewis peeking inside cars, opening the door to one of them, and sitting inside the passenger seat for about 2 minutes, police say.
He then reportedly got out and started checking the handles of other cars. Lewis was approached by an officer and police say that he told them he was waiting for his girlfriend.
According to the arrest affadavit, when Lewis was arrested again, he handed the officer a brown bag containing an iPhone 7, four packs of cigarettes, a lighter, one Visa bank debit card, a Florida driver’s license and $547 in cash.
Lewis was walked back inside the jail. He's charged with burglary, grand larceny, and possession of stolen property.
