Shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday, Paris police responded to a call of a suspicious person in the 1000 block of North Main Street, police department spokesman Curtis Garrett said.
The complainant advised that keys to three vehicles turned up missing earlier in the day, so he waited after hours to see if someone showed up to take one or more of the vehicles.
Tevin Deshaun Nelson, 20, of Hugo, Okla., was arrested after entering the car lot and unlocking a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban with the keyless remote.
Nelson was charged with theft of property greater than $1,500 but less than $20,000. The incident is under investigation.
Paris police officers responded to 118 calls for service on Wednesday, resulting in five arrests, Garrett said.
