Deputies charge drunken man who breaks into Bealls through roof

Posted: Updated:

Eric Willard, 23, has been charged with burglary after deputies say he broke into a department store through a rooftop air conditioning panel early Saturday morning.

According to deputies, Willard was drinking at Peckers Pub with his mom, and got into an argument with her.

The bar and deputies say Willard then went to the Ormond Beach Mall on Ocean Shore Boulevard and climbed to the roof of a nearby Bealls Outlet store and pried open an air conditioning panel and fell into the store.

Deputies say he didn't take anything, but surveillance video shows him in the store stumbling around for 17 minutes.

A few days later a deputy who had given Willard a trespass warning at Peckers Pub recognized the man shown in the stores' surveillance videos as Willard. He was arrested Monday afternoon and booked into jail in Daytona Beach.

Willard told deputies he doesn't remember being in the Bealls store.
