Published:

SPRING HILL - A Spring Hill man was booked on no bond Thursday after admitting to breaking into vehicles in a parking lot and violating his probation.

When sheriff's deputies responded to the Motel 6 at 6172 Commercial Way they saw, Steven Baer, 52, being chased by an employee through the parking, according to the arrest report.

Baer was found with burglary tools inside a travel cooler. The man admitted to the burglary, and said "It was me. I was just trying to find some money."

Baer was seen by the car owners taking various items out the vehicle through a broken passenger side window. The arrest report shows the dashboard was removed along with the stereo.

Baer later told law enforcement he thought the car belonged to someone who owed him about $1,000 in drug debt. He was booked on charges of burglary of an unoccupied conveyance, possession of burglary tools and violation of probation (possession of a controlled substance).
