A man was in Bell County Jail Wednesday after allegedly stealing a vehicle from a car dealership lot in Killeen.

Anthony Glenn Powell Jr., 31, was charged with felony theft.

According to the arrest affidavit, the Killeen Police Department responded to a call of a suspicious person Monday morning when the officer found Powell in the area of a vehicle with sales stickers.
