URBANA — A Mahomet man was criminally charged Thursday after he allegedly got in another man's van without the owner's permission.
Mahomet Police Chief Mike Metzler said a man living in the 200 block of North Jefferson Street reported seeing a man inside his neighbor's van about 9:15 p.m. Wednesday. The neighbor yelled at the person in the van and the man took off.
Police found Joshua A. Walker, 24, of the 500 block of East Franklin Street nearby and questioned him. He admitted being in the van but said he was there to return money he had stolen from the van two weeks earlier, Metzler said.
Walker was charged with burglary and criminal trespass to vehicle and told to be back in court May 7.
