A Jacksonville man is accused of breaking into a vehicle and stealing a debit card.

According to arrest warrants from the Onslow County Sheriff's Office, 47-year-old Bernard Tyson broke into another man’s Kia Forte some time between Aug. 13 and 14.

The warrants say Tyson stole a Navy Federal debit card from the vehicle, then bought cigarettes, tampons and a Snapple drink with the card.

Tyson is charged with three felonies, including breaking and entering a vehicle, financial card theft and identify theft, the warrants state. He was being held at the Onslow County Jail under a $2,000 bond.

Tyson had his first court appearance Friday morning.
