Man steals car from Monroe dealership, rams it through restaurant to rob cash register

MONROE, La - First he stole a car, then he used it to break into a Monroe business and steal a cash register.

Now 54-year-old Steven Spillman is in jail after surveillance video helped deputies track him down.

They say he jacked a Chevy suburban from a used car dealership in Monroe, and rammed it through the front door of Fish at Joe's on Richwood Rd.

Video shows Spillman then going into the restaurant and leaving with an entire cash register.

After gathering evidence from both crime scenes, officers were able to place Spillman at the Motel 6 on Martin Luther King jr. Drive, where he was arrested.

He's now facing felony charges of simple burglary and theft of a motor vehicle.
