In the dumpster

Sure seems an appropriate spot for him to hide.

In the trash bin.

Police Discover Burglar Hiding In Trash Bin

Police in Jacksonville, Florida, say that they found a man who stole 10 pistols and six rifles from a gun store there hiding in a trash bin behind a Taco Bell.

When officers responded to a burglary at Shooters of Jacksonville in the early morning hours of June 22, they reported seeing a Ford Mustang quickly pull away from the business with its lights off.

The vehicle eventually pulled into the Taco Bell parking lot where it crashed into a pole. A security guard saw the driver, identified as Rodwick Jewing Dowston, jump into a trash bin behind the restaurant, where police eventually caught Dowston.

Dowston has been charged with burglary, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and resisting arrest. As of this writing, bail has not been set.
