Suspect Admits to Tiger Stop Convenience Store Burglary
COLUMBIA — Alexander Watson, 22, broke into the Tiger Stop Convenience Store at Clark Lane Monday.
Watson voluntarily came to the Columbia Police Department Wednesday for questioning about the burglary, and he admitted his involvement in the incident. Watson gave his consent to recover the two remaining bottles of alcohol, the car jack used to break the front glass window of the business and the outer clothing he wore during the burglary.
Officers located all of the items at Watson's home or in his vehicle.
The stores video surveillance captured Watson committing the burglary by breaking the glass out of the front door with a large object, enter the store and steal several bottles of alcohol.
The video captured Watson on video wearing gray sweat pants, a black shirt, black shoes, black cap and black mask. A press release stated Watson's name was suspect because he had been recently fired from the business and fit the suspect description.
Officials arrested Watson for burglary in the second degree with a bond of $4,500.
