Just after 1 a.m., police responded to a burglary call at the Walgreens off Hawthorne Avenue, where officers noticed a hole in the building’s front glass door, the release said. Wessinger was arrested inside the store.
The video obtained by police allegedly tied Wessinger to the ambulance theft. The vehicle was abandoned about a mile from the Walgreens.
He faces charges of smash-and-grab burglary, motor vehicle theft, DUI, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license, according to Clarke County jail records. He also has a hold for an outstanding felony in Oglethorpe County.
Wessinger remains in jail without bond, records show.
