Car thief arrested after stopping to look at eclipse

'He never saw it coming'

A Florida man who was a suspect in a car theft was arrested Monday when he stopped to buy a welding mask to view the eclipse.

According to UPI, Jocsan Feliciano Rosado, 22, pulled into the parking lot of a Harbor Freight store in Kissimmee in a stolen vehicle the Orange County Auto Theft Unit had been pursuing. Officials say Rosado went into the store and bought the helmet, and was subsequently arrested while standing next to the stolen car and viewing the solar eclipse.

"He never saw it coming." the sheriff's office said. "That only happens every 99 years."
