Trespasser arrested after climbing into lady’s automotive at Pilot in Wildwood


Christian Paul Jacobsen

An intruder was arrested after climbing into a woman’s car at the Pilot Travel Center off State Road 44 in Wildwood.

Sumter County Sheriff’s deputies were called to Pilot at 9:39 p.m. Monday after 51-year-old Christian Paul Jacobsen was seen standing on the west side of the building after being told “several times” to vacate the property leaving. A deputy told Jacobsen he had to go.

However, Jacobsen went to the back of the building and entered the store through the truck driver’s entrance. The deputy told Jacobsen to leave, and he cooperated and walked out. Jacobsen went to the nearby Lot 75 Chrome Shop. Jacobsen then walked back to Pilot and got into the blue Chevrolet of one of Pilot’s employees. She said Jacobsen did not have permission to be in her vehicle. She made sure nothing had been stolen from the vehicle.

Jacobsen was arrested for trespassing and being held at the Sumter County Detention Center on $1,000 bail.
