A Florida man actually tried to break into a car that was filled with cops


A Florida man added yet another classic act of stupidity to “Florida man” lore earlier this month when he tried to break into a vehicle …

… that was full of cops.

One night, 49-year-old Stephen Titland was captured on surveillance video as he went from car to car on a Tampa residential block trying to find one that was unlocked. However, the seven doors he tried were all locked.

The next night, however, Titland found a door that was unlocked – except it wasn’t empty.

Instead, the unmarked Pasco Sheriff’s Office vehicle was full of the sheriff’s office’s Strategic Targeted Area Response Team members who promptly arrested the man, who had already been on probation for felony burglary and criminal mischief.

On Tuesday, the Pasco Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect and shared a surveillance video still.

Titland was charged with attempted burglary for the seven vehicles he tried to break into the night before.
