Woman Reports Strange Man Sitting in Her SUV

web posted February 25, 2014

MERRIWETHER A Murrah Road woman called 911 early Friday morning after spotting and unknown man sitting in her SUV. The woman said she heard a horn blow just after 5:30 am and looked out to see the man in her vehicle. When deputies arrived they found 26-year-old Harold A. Edgin sitting in the driver's seat of the SUV with the doors shut. He was ordered out of the vehicle and complied.

Edgin was taken into investigative custody and, according to an incident report, told deputies he was in a friends car and "they had just raped his girlfriend". The report also stated Edgin claimed to work for the FBI. He also told deputies he parked his vehicle on Broadwater Circle.

The victim stated she did not know Edgin and did not give him permission to be in her vehicle. At that time he was arrested and then transported to be held for pending charges.

Another deputy located Edgin's vehicle on Broadwater Circle and found it locked with the keys sitting on the passenger seat. It was towed from the scene. Later in the morning the tow company called and said they had been able to unlock the SUV and while searching for a registration card found drugs in the center console.

A deputy arrived, photographed the marijuana, and then took it into evidence.

Edgin has been charged with felony breaking and entering and vehicle and was released Monday on a $5,000 surety bond. He will have to make a first appearance in General Sessions Court on April 10.
