Man arrested trying to break into car dealership

A quick-thinking security guard helped catch a suspected burglar at a Lexington car dealership early Wednesday.

Police say the suspect was trying to break into the showroom at Freedom Dodge Chrysler Jeep on New Circle Road, near Woodhill, when the guard caught him.

The suspect was detained until police arrived.

The suspect told police he was trying to steal the white Dodge Charger in the showroom because, "God wanted him to," police said.

For a while, the suspect was only telling police his name was "seven."

However, the suspect was later identified as David Allen Silva, 36.
