A 62-year-old man was caught stealing survival equipment from a truck at an Economy Inn in Florida, USA.

A trucker who was staying in the hotel allegedly heard noises coming from his truck.

He ventured outside to investigate and found Tommie Bennett attempting to escape on a bycycle with the man’s tackle box, tent and fishing pole.

The trucker wrestled Bennett to the ground and tied him up.

Officers arrived and found the would-be thief had a pocket full of un-prescribed Viagra.

Bennett’s mugshot caused controversy online due to his extensive scalp injuries, but Putnam County Sheriff's Office said that the man "evidently" had a skin condition.

He was charged with a range of offences including burglary of a conveyance, larceny and possession of a new legend drug without a prescription
