Partied too hearty: Dude, where's my car?

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Police say a confused Albany man broke into an Albany used car business looking for his car. Trouble was-- he was at the wrong car lot.

The whole thing was caught on surveillance video just after four Thursday morning at Uncle Robert's Used Cars on West Oglethorpe Boulevard.

Police say 27-year-old Jimmy Jucks banged on the sliding front door until it breaks.

He and slips his hand through the door, unlatches it, and steps inside setting off the alarm. Jucks leaves the office, goes outside, and starts using his keys to try to crank several cars.

Police say Jucks told them he had been partying at a club and was just looking for his car, but he had left it at the Lincoln Mercury dealership on West Broad a block away. 

"I don't think he was trying to rob anything. I think he was just looking for his car. He checked all the cars thinking they were his. And just went in and out thinking it was his car, and couldn't find anything," said Danny McDonald, Uncle Robert's Used Cars Owner.

After giving up trying to start a car, Jucks returns to the office and sits down at the desk.

Police found him hiding in the alley behind the office, and charged him with criminal trespass.

The owner hopes to get Jucks to pay the $200 to fix the broken door.
