Law enforcement has been keeping an eye out for people breaking into cars, but one DPS state trooper has now been the victim of a vehicle burglary as well.

The Brazos County Sheriff's Office says a deputy saw Billy Bowden, 56, getting out of a DPS trooper's vehicle in a parking garage on 26th street in Bryan around 10:30 Wednesday morning. Bowden was wearing a trooper's hat and said he took it from the vehicle.

Authorities say he admitted that he was trying door handles on the vehicle and found the passenger door unlocked.

He was arrested and charged with burglary of a vehicle.
