(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – A Lawrenceburg man awaits trial after allegedly stealing a car and carrying a weapon without a license.

Cameron Williamson, 22, was arrested late February 19 after he allegedly stole a woman’s car.

The victim told police that she had met him at the Brickyard bar on Walnut Street and was giving him a ride home. The victim stopped at CVS, leaving Williamson alone in her car, and when she came back outside her car was gone, said police.

Police were in the drug store parking lot taking the victim’s statement when Williamson returned the vehicle. Williamson told officers he had only driven the vehicle around the parking lot.

Officers asked Williamson if he had any weapons on his person and Williamson indicated he did, said officers. Police removed and identified the weapon as a .38 caliber handgun, for which Williamson allegedly did not have a concealed carry permit.

Williamson refused a field sobriety test, police said.

Williamson was released on a $500 cash and $5,000 surety bail bond. His pretrial is set for April 3 at 11:00 a.m.
